Vijay Pichumani

VIJAY PICHUMANI
Born in Tamil Nadu, India, 1987; lives and works in Chennai, India
Vijay started his artistic career with a BFA and an MFA from the Government College of Arts and Crafts, Chennai. His work is predominantly autobiographical and emerges from the sights he sees in the city and incidents from his personal experiences. Well known for his large wood blocks of owls and crows, his most recent works visualises sound through lines, rendering them a tactile quality that resonates with a collective frequency embedded in our personal narratives. By exploring the space between the lines, his work is at once macro in its vision and micro in its depth.
