  • Images 2003Chitra Kala Parishad, Bengaluru. Inaugurated M R Sreenivasa Murthy, I.A.S, Commissioner of Bengaluru Nagara Palika.
  • MahamayaMahamaya is a collection that symbolises Navaratri featuring the three goddesses - Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswathi. Using colour and symbolic imagery, V. V. Ramani depicts each goddess and what she stands for - for example, Meenakshi by fiery colours, a tiger, and a trishulam that is actually created out of an inverted image of the Buddha, and Lakshmi alternatively by pretty shades of pink and lotuses or by lustrous, crinkled golden paper and golden coins symbolising wealth.
  • Heads and TalesJaya Jaitly, founder National Association of Crafts People inaugurated the show Heads and Tails. What has inspired me to go on with my work has been the response that I got from art lovers and connoisseurs. An incident that remains fresh in my mind is the reaction I got from gallery owner, Payal Kapoor, who was passing by and saw the works being displayed. She said she liked my works laced with humour and immediately bought a work even before the show! If that was not enough, she asked her art consultant, Mr. Suneeth Chopra, art critic and curator to drop by. He felt I was able to bring about the quality of miniature paintings in the work - "I am Fire"
  • Makhan ChorMalaysian artist/set and lighting designer, Shivarajah Nataraja and Dance exponent , Ramli Ibrahim invited me for my first show abroad after seeing my "Navarasa". A memorable and successful show ,thanks to the wonderful hosts , who took time off to share ideas and art connoisseurs and friends too! People asked me - Why Krishna- when I chose Makhan Chor as my theme for my show in Malaysia.

    The response was good and the buyers were not Hindus. They remarked that they bought the works for the creative , contemporary appeal and colour , though they did not understand the subject. Malaysian artist Syed Tajuddin wrote to me saying I should continue my work ceaselessly and take my works to New York!

  • A celebration of 100 years of collage by V. V. Ramani was inaugurated by Siddharth Varadarajan (Editor - The Hindu) on 10-Jan-2012 at the Lalit Kala Akademi. Dr. Ashrafi Bhagat speaks on the Art of Collage
