G. D. Paulraj was born in 1914 and lived in Kodaikanal. He studied at the Chennai Government School of Arts and was known as a watercolour expert.

His paintings include scenes from villages just before rain, leaves of the Gulmohar tree on the ground, busy market places, a blind man singing, etc. He was also proficient in oil and poster colour painting and used tempera in some of his images. Paulraj is known to have never used white to mix colour. He played with colours so beautifully that the paper was enough to give the white shade.
