Sudhi, an art teacher at Sir Syed English School Pavaratty, won an international award for his watercolour painting.
During the covid lockdown, Sudhi recovered a photo of prawns on his Whatsapp from a fish seller.
Later, he forgot about the image completed until 2022, and soon he used it as a reference for his watercolour work and competed at the International Watercolor Society (IWS) in Spain.
Unfortunately, Sudhi could not attend the exhibition and competitions that had 256 different artists joined from 40 countries.
Sudhi heard about the award ceremony from his fellow artists. Two days after the event, he received an email confirming his winning and a cash price of 500 euros.
