"GENIUS WHO EXPRESS THE HUMAN FORM THROUGH CLAY"

“Professor Sarath's outstanding expression of the human form is wonderfully conveyed in clay. All his figures are deployed as expressive vehicle to explore the dilemma of spirit incarnate.

Moment, gesture and intentional distortions of proportion characterize many of Sarath's figurative works, giving them an upward thrust in physical and metaphysical senses. In addition to meeting the growing demand for his highly original and austerely beautiful bronzes, he could be introduced as the most fastest Sculptor in the world".
