"I have collaborated with Raghavendra Hegde a few times on Live concerts and virtual events. He is a true artist in every sense of the word. Sand art is a unique and eco friendly art form that Raghavendra has mastered. I have always felt that art needs to be an interpretation of real life, by diving deep into the personality of a subject, or the soul of a moment. Raghavendra style of sand art is very conducive to such interpretation. I wish Raghavendra my very best in perusing this fantastic art form, reaching out to as many art lovers globally and inspiring more such artists like himself."

"For Raghavendra Hegde sand is the medium of expression. From this grainy bed images appear and disappear in time, following the movement of his hands. Trees, people, animals, patterns and words manifest and submerge in the sand, mimicking the life cycle. Once in a while he captures them and retains them for posterity. This is the playground for his Leela"
