Who Am I (Naan Yaar)- Vijay Pichumani

"By using a flower as a universal symbol, my sculpture highlights important qualities such as love, beauty, and compassion, which are essential for self-discovery. Additionally, the sculpture emphasizes the significance of the five elements- earth, air, fire, water and space- which are integral parts of our environment and essential for our well-being.

I hope to inspire individuals to reflect on their inner selves and recognize the significance of their connection with nature and the five elements. My sculpture serves as a reminder that every breath we take has the potential to reveal our true selves and connect us to the world around us. Through this piece, I wish to encourage viewers to deepen their relationship with nature and find peace and balance within themselves.

My artwork is an expression of the power of love and compassion to bridge societal divides and compassion to bridge societal divides and bring us together as a unified community. It is inspired by the idea that although our societal status may separate us, we can all connect through the universal
language of love.

The central focus of my artwork is the flower, which represents the fragility and beauty of life. The flowers spread their fragrance through the air blending into people and creating a sense of harmony and unity. Like the flowers, we can also spread love and compassion, bringing happiness and positivity to those around us.

I believe that our world needs more love and understanding, and my artwork serves as a reminder that we can all make a positive impact through our actions and attitudes. By treating each other with kindness and respect, we can overcome the societal barriers that often separate us and create a more inclusive and loving society. "
