Krish V. Krishnan is the definition of a world traveler. The Wilmette artist has visited more than 60 countries and called at least dozen of them home at one time or another in his life. 

A successful businessman, Krishnan has always made a point to carry art supplies in his suitcases during these voyages to document some of what he sees. Whether using watercolor, scratchboard, acrylics, pencil or pastel, he expresses himself through his art and then chronicles the experiences by composing journalistic essays on each piece.
