Vinita, being an artist is a multi-disciplined affair. In her latest series ‘Storytelling’ she uses popular posters, photographs, prints, paints and intriguing items juxtaposed in such a way that their familiar contexts are broken down and powerful new emotional associations come into being.
Each piece takes around two to three months to complete and are created using a loose blend of overlapping elements. The elements say one thing ‘Individuality’ yet placed together; the message is more complicated and less certain. Personal associations spontaneously arise within the viewer in an attempt to understand the whole and complete the story. Vinita’s aim is to make the viewer interpret and to become more involved in the imageries. She says ‘To be successful as an artist, the viewer needs to stand in front of my work and feel something. To me, my art is about the process of discovery, the synthesis of my personal feelings, colour that inspires me and the technique that I use: It’s a piece of who I Am.’
Vinita has won many prestigious awards including ‘National Fellowship’ from the Ministry of Culture for the year 2013-2015. Her work can be found in collections around the world.
