His main subject is Chettinad Architecture and its landscape. Chettinad which is located in South Tamil Nadu has approximately 75 villages in the region. Sendhil is from one of those villages.
He says,” There are hundreds of beautiful mansions in Chettinad. Most of them were built in nineteenth-century. As a child, I was very much impressed by these Chettinad mansions which have been an inspiration for me to capture their beauty in paint. Some of these beautiful mansions were not able to be maintained by the current generation which in turn leads to their demolition. So, I wanted to paint these beautiful but crumbling mansions and preserve them in the form of Art.”
