About Me

   Jay Appurao, M.D..... The artist

My name is Jay Appurao, MD, FACS, more commonly known to all around me simply as ‘Dr. Jay’, I have been an artist all my life, but have just never been in the limelight.  I am a totally self taught artist and mostly do Oil paintings, Drawings with Oil Pastels Charcoal and Graphite.  Almost all of my paintings reflect my personal passion for the art rather than the business of it. 

Born and raised in India, I immigrated to USA with my wife, who is also a physician, in 1975 to New York City. I have been a busy practicing Surgeon in Louisiana since 1981 and have also been a practicing Cosmetic Surgeon since year  2000. I am an extensive traveler and a photographer with an eye for the unusual in plain sight! I see beauty surrounding me at all times!

Since I never had any formal education in the arts, you can see me grow by trial and error throughout my paintings. The lack of formal education meant that I had to adopt my own simple techniques to come up with my creations that reveal that deficiency. That led me to try many techniques of my own striving to do better at all times. This is reflected by the many variations in techniques that defy definition of ‘my style’ of art.  I jump between photo-realism to impressionism often.  I also jump from Landscapes, to Still life to Portraits and Nudes. All my travels to many countries, some of them exotic, like Iceland to Namibia, tend to allow for a great variation in a study of beautiful peoples and sceneries. 

Thus my paintings are amalgamations of the chains of thought that start in one place and end up in a very different place. However, one recurring theme that comes out is the passionate appreciation of the dancing of the contrasting colors, lights and shadows. One can see that in my fall sceneries and the still life with wine glasses titled ‘Red, White and Light’.  Of course the ‘Time Keeper’ is on the top of that list. It is also obvious that my portraits are often the portraits of an emotion that exudes. This is self evident in the painting ‘Anguish’ Some of his paintings are totally imaginary, out of nowhere but my brains, like the ‘Light house’. ‘The Nude with Red Hair’ also came about that way! Being able to appreciate and imagine what is beautiful in a feminine body is a great gift of Art and Cosmetic Surgery, and I am able to totally blend the arts of Surgery and Beauty. 
The one group of people who love me for my art, besides all others, are my two precious Granddaughters, Salena (13) and Mia (11)  they call me ‘Ajja” And they love to come to my home to study theirs masters in art at ‘Ajja’s School of Fine Arts!’ That alone is the most satisfying gift to me.
