Indian Artist Vikram Dayal exhibiting in SOLO Pavilion at Artexpo This Weekend
Vikram Dayal strongly believes that art must evoke an emotional response—especially laughter. Vikram’s art, much like his other works, explores the humorous aspects of life—quite often through satire. In his words:
“If my painting has evoked some response, be it ridicule, anger or outrage, I am flattered. If you see the humor that I see, I am thrilled! The only way of insulting my art is by ignoring it. Laugh at it, ridicule it, curse it, burn it, throw it, just please don’t ignore it!”
An artist with an unconventional style, Vikram likes to express his perspective via oils, acrylics and charcoal—sometimes all in the same painting. His art is satirical, insightful and multi-layered. He draws his inspiration from Salvador Dali, MF Hussein and other early proponents of Progressive Indian Art, though his themes are light-hearted and provide a unique perspective on the world.
Vikram is a graduate of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur and has won numerous awards in Theater & Art. His works are in private collections as well as exhibited in India and the US. This year, Mr. Dayal is the only Indian artist being exhibited at Artexpo.
