Reghu was born in killimanoor, Kerala. He lives and works in Bangalore now.
Though he began with stone as a medium, he shunned expensive material like marble or bronze in favour for humble terracotta. Although Reghu was traditionally a potter, he turned to ceramic sculptor his works are inspired by his own agricultural background and the Gandhian ideal of working with local materials. Inspired by the tribal art, from the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh.
He was always fascinated by rural scenes and the way people go about their lives, no matter which part of our country the rustic folks are genuine and simple he says.
This Ceramic artist, feels that his work has a fragrance of fresh air and earth and is purely relevant is the context of today’s mounting pollution and degradation. The earthly charm and innocence in his depiction are like a soothing balm to us today, kindling charm in our eyes and contemplation
leading us to our rural rustic roots where the smell of clay and purity of life are predominant. He has many awards and achievements to his credit.
