K Vishwanathans'  life story - in his own words

" I was born in Kumbakonam 1964, Thanjavur District of Tamil Nadu.

I come from a family of Artist, so the inclination and passion for Art came naturally to me. My brother particularly guided and influenced my thoughts during my growing years.  Drawn towards Crafts paintings and sculpture. I set out very early in exploring and putting my ideas into reality.

Kumbakonam the glorious temple town ,adorned with beautiful ancient temples of Chola and Pallava era inspired and enriched my life.

My schooling was near the Railway Station, Darasuram. I have vivid childhood memories of the time I spent in the Darasuram and Pattishwaram temples. Temples were places to study, meet and worship for us  Learning and fun ran parallel.

Later, I graduated in College of Arts & Crafts, Kumbakonam. I stood first  for five years consecutively, won competitions and  received lot of awards. My formal education helped me to refine my art skills.

A brief glimpse into my college days  is worth mentioning here, as it brought unique experiences. I had to commute to college crossing the river. We were ferried by a coracle, a small round boat. The river was surrounded by dense forest, the clear water, the ancient temples hiding behind the groves the earthy smell of the serene village was a picturesque beauty. These were some of my memorable  moments.

Coming back to my graduation, I moved to Chennai for my MFA degree. I was then selected by a leading Animation film maker The Motion Graphics Chennai as a background artist for a cartoon series. Under them I worked for  the  Panchatantra  a full-fledged 2D  Animation film and A Documentary on How to learn Cricket a 2D TV series of famous cricketer Sunil Gavaskar.

In the year 1988 , I was selected as a Graphics designer in IGNOU New Delhi. Here, I got  an opportunity to  design for Educational institutions and Top Ad agencies. My biggest breakthrough  was given by  Director.  Dr.Peggy Mohan for a children series.  I did puppet show, 2D Animation / Muppet show and The famous preschool TV project from NCERT, Titled Tarram Too. Later under my Spouse s Designing firm The Design & Details I started designing backdrops,  set  designing and fabrication for all top News and Prime time programmes. For DAVP, I worked on some important Government programme The Pulse Polio immunisation and The HIV programme that won awards for designing posters & exhibitions.

My recent work was at the studio of the Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narender Modi. Designing and fabrication for the programme MANN KI BAAT. I was appreciated by Honourable President Late  Dr.Abdul Kalam for Designing and fabrication of the Multimedia Studio at Rashrapathi Bhavan.

These accounts. to some of the work experiences recognition and achievements but, I have not reached my goals really. They keep changing and going further, My struggles is when I have to chase my inspiration, energy  with little or no time. Streamline  the cluster of ideas that constantly flow. executing them to near perfection.

I have done a  few of  my solo painting exhibitions  in the National Capital Delhi in the year 2018 - 20  My paintings  was on our village deity Ayannar the Guardian God who protects from all external threat. During these times of lockdown I have been working on the Corona Awareness Campaign and participating in online  competitions. I have started with a series on  Ayannar depicting him in my drawings as a protector, fighting the pandemic.

With my deep bond to my roots and culture , I want to showcase our Ancient Heritage, Architecture Art to the world and to the Next Generation. Through my knowledge of 3D animation and Maya, I want to express and present my Paintings Drawings in Virtual Reality the upcoming years.

I am presently training my daughters in the Art field. I wish to thank  'The Connoisseur' Art Team for Solo Art Exhibition 2020 for giving me this opportunity. "
