In 1956, he joined the Government College of Fine Arts, Chennai from where he secured a diploma in 1961 and, on receiving a Government of India scholarship, he did advanced studies until 1964. His days at the Government College of Fine Arts gave him the opportunity to come in contact with D. P. Roy Choudhury, the then principal and K. C. S. Paniker, who was the vice principal of the institution, and Narayanan was also involved with Paniker's efforts to found Cholamandal Artists' Village in 1966.

He received another scholarship, this time from the Government of France, which assisted him to move to Paris to study at École des Beaux-Arts, where he studied until 1970; at the institution, he studied monumental art under Jean Bertholle and engraving under Lucien Couteau. Subsequently, he settled in Paris where lives.

Narayanan received the state award of the Lalit Kala Akademi, Chennai, in 1963 and twice more in 1965 and in 1966. In between, he received the Association of Young Painters & Sculptors Award, sponsored by the Akademi in 1965 and in 1972, he received an award at 4th International Painting Festival, Cagnes-sur_Mer. Kerala Lalithakala Akademi awarded him the K. C. S. Paniker Puraskaram in 2009. The Akademi honoured him again with the Raja Ravi Varma Award to Narayanan in 2017. The Akademi has also produced a 27-minute documentary film on the life of the artist, which was directed by K. N. Shaji.
