Rency Punnoose was born in Kerala, India. He moved to the United States in 2008. He lives with his wife, son and daughter in Los Angeles and is active in the artist community. He is a member of the International Guild of Realism (IGOR), the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association(LPAPA), the California Plein Air Painters Association, the El Segundo Art Association, the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS) and the Portrait Society of America (PSoA). He also serves as a Monthly Competition Chair of the Torrance Artists’ Guild.

Mr. Punnoose practiced as an attorney in India after earning his LLB (Law Degree) from the prestigious university of Pune. But in the field of fine art painting he chose the path of informal education in the classical realist tradition. His learning was mainly by observing other artists, visiting museums and through books, videos and other such resources. It is this knowledge and skill gained from a rich tradition that he uses to accomplish his contemporary works. His works are as classical and traditional as modern and contemporary they are.

“The Beauty is beckoning me and the Truth is compelling me, I have to paint.” (Rency Punnoose)
