Dr. Sivananda was very fortunate to be born in an artistic family.  His father, Mr. N. S. V. Rao, was a painter, writer, dramatist and a singer.  Sivananda was inspired by watching his father paint which led him also to art.  For many years since childhood, Sivananda had learnt from his father.  He had started exhibiting his drawings since the age of twelve.

Sivananda started painting in oils while pursuing his studies in engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), where he had obtained a doctorate degree in Electrical Engineering.  He has studied with some of the top artists like David A Leffel, Burton Silverman, Daniel Greene, Dawn Whitelaw, Michael Shane Neal, and Scott Christensen. 

Sivananda has been juried into the Nation’s top competitions.  He has also won many awards from these competitions.  Partial lists of awards and exhibitions are given below. 

Sivananda has also been a member of the  jury for some of the Nation’s top art competitions.

Sivananda has been teaching art for over 19 years.
