Featured on CNN’s list of ten fascinating thinkers, authors and provocateurs in 2010, Raghava’s work traverses traditional forms of painting, installation and performance, while his practice embraces new media (artificial intelligence, neuro-feedback, biohacking, board and video games, crypto currencies etc), to express post-human contemporary realities. His lectures, including 5 TED talks, are known for inspiring audiences to expand their social and psychological selves, using art. Last year, Netflix launched an episode on Raghava in the Creative Indians Series.
Raghava co-founded and chaired The INK Fellowship (The TED of India), India’s leading global multidisciplinary fellowship program in 2010. Raghava was inducted into the National Geographic Society in 2013 as an Explorer, for pushing the boundaries of scientific exploration through art. Raghava KK currently lives and works out of New York and Bangalore.
In 2021, Raghava was the first Indian artist to launch an NFT at Sotheby's, New York in partnership with BurningMan - a collaborative artwork created using brainwaves, AI and painting robots at Boundless Space. Raghava also worked on a collaborative AI art piece created with Harshit Agrawal and 64/1 entitled Strange Genders; this piece was longlisted for the Lumen Prize 2021.
