A few from the art community give us their views regarding the lack of national recognition for Laxma Goud

I  studied under Laxma Goud and he is a great visionary. He is known for his extraordinary skills and great craftsmanship. It will be a prestigious moment for the state if he gets a national honour. The artist himself will never ask or wait for awards, it is the government which must stand up and recognise their artists. Those in our state are not aware of our own masters. Government should be aware of his stature in the global market. If the government does this, he will be even more approachable for the next generation of artists. Government can also approach him for ideas on how to develop art in the state as well. — Manohar Chiluveru, Artist

Rather than his personality, it’s his talent that people remember him the most for. He is so versatile; he has worked on almost all mediums. I love his work because it’s not static; there is so much of movement in it. He has been awarded by the Lalit Kala Akademi, Hydera-bad Art Society and so on. When a person is so revered for their talent, it’s hardly of any concern whether he gets any more recognition or medals from the government or not. — Anju Poddar, Author and art collector

Artists like him should be recognised with a national honour. It is a pity that till now he has not got any. He is an inspiring artist for many students and artists as are his techniques, aesthetics and visual language. I owe all my success as an artist to my teacher Laxma Goud. And I am sure there are many more like me who share the same feeling. — Rajeswara Rao, Artist
