Our Indian society has always been well-known to have a deep-rooted fixation with fair skin. Colour has always been the measuring tape to measure the beauty or personality of a person.
Rames Harikrishnasamy a self taught digital artist in Malaysia, creats his masterpieces inspired from his daily life experiences.
Rames Harikrishnasamy an eminent digital storyteller has taken to his social media platform to enlighten and share his thoughts on colourism. He took to his Instagram handle by creating an exquisite art work featuring the Indian Goddess in different skin colours.
His art work is a beautiful resemblance that, our Indian goddesses come in different skin tones, yet we are devoted to them regardless of their colour. His art work significantly and profoundly encourages us to embrace the colour of our skin and not criticise each other based on our skin complexion.
Regrettably in the Indian culture till this very day, a person’s value and character is defined through the colour of their skin. The fairer you are, the more beautiful you appear to be in society.
We being Indians, this has been a very prevalent belief that has been embedded in our society through generations, scripted into movies and even in our ancient chronicle stories like Mahabharatham, where a good person is always portrayed to be fair with a flamboyant personality, whereas a dark skinned person is shown as the villain with evil and bad intention.
All his artwork is done using his digital tool, under the platform of photoshop where his magic digital creations are made. His masterpiece on colourism has garnered up to 30,600 likes across social media, reaching out to a large community pouring out their thoughts and personal opinions in his comment section. His personal account has over 116 thousand followers from all walks of life.
Now, he is also one of the speaker for Adobe, invited to share his mind blowing techniques used in photoshop to create his artwork. Rames is the real epitome of success to be looked upon and embraced!
