Comments about the artist :

Suriyamoorthy is the odd man out among his contemporaries as his spiritual kinsman, Salvador Dali, was among his : eccentric, unpredictable, amiable in their own quaint way, artistically irrepressible, technically impeccable and intellectually sharp. Suriyamoorthy’s paintings are no easy to live with because of the disurbingly unfamiliar concepts and configurations on which they are based. Their aesthetic values are beyond question. He is an extremely imaginative, daring, determined and emotionally overstrung loner who is perfectly at peace with himself, never mind what his equation with the rest of the world is. There is so much power packed into his canvases that one simply can’t take one’s eyes off hem. They command you to stop by and take a close look at them. This is that creativity does to you.
- Dr. A.S. Raman – 1999.


"His mixed media paintings are different others as he has used Siddha medical colours, mixed in gum which he discovered after long research and after reffering to literature Siddha medicine and botany. Painted on manifold sheets –"a difficult material o paint on", he says – it can hardly be differentiated from his oil paintings. Closely drawn figures creating a sense of family is the subject of all his paintings. The style hovers between the realistic and the abstract. He has used not just brush but instruments like a funnel or a knife to colour the figures. Suriyamoorthy is just not a painter. He is also a Scientist of heart." - Art Critic, Sunday Mail – 1965, Drawing – One Man Show- Delhi Sponsored by Curator George M. Butcher (Art Council of Great Britain – London) 13th Feb 1965.

"Highly Talented and Accomplished Artist" - W. Grant Parr (Formerly United States Cultural Attached in West Germany and sometimes art critic of the Nebraska State Journal in Lincoln, USA.

"Savage Painter" - Charles Fabri, art critic Statesman, New Delhi

"Nude Inaction – Gifted Painter" - Richard Bartholomew art critic Times of India, New Delhi.
