Born 1939 Senathipathi in Chennai. He received his Diploma in Drawing and Painting from the Government College of Arts and Crafts, Chennai, in 1965. In 1988 he received a British Council grant to travel to London, France, Holland, Belgium and West Germany.
Senathipathi is known for his representations of Indian Gods and Goddesses. Though he leans on Indian mythology for his subjects he infuses them with the spirit of the human by rooting his works in contemporary times. It is this amalgamation of two diverse qualities that creates a sense of drama and infuses the works with a fresh perspective. The artist is also versatile in using metal relief for his subjects.
