About T. Vaikuntham

Thota Vaikuntam finds the Telangana women of his village very spiritual and sensuous and he attempts to capture their vibrancy on canvas by using rich primary Indian colours, like reds, saffron and ochre, which give a sense of character and depth to his paintings. Vaikuntam’s art has an innate power that emanates from the paint or charcoal that he applies to the surface, from his control over lines, and from the brilliant fine strokes that he executes.
