Artist Vinay Salya

Joined Craft Tatva: December 2021

Born in Tadepalligudem, Andhra Pradesh, Artist Kasa Vinay Kumar creates works that one could say, counter the disparateness between the two mediums – printmaking and painting. A graduate from the College of Fine Arts, Chennai, Kasa Vinay Kumar’s initial works were inspired by tribal life. His works also looked at the concept of the five elements in association with the physical relationship between man and woman. However, his current series of works engage with the concept of money and the way it impacts mundane life in innumerable ways. He especially looks at the role that money plays in human relationships since relationships are also nurtured for their being an investment in times of need. He likens his father to an ATM with himself being the card that ultimately makes him gain currency (financial and emotional). The concept of money being common to different facets of life can be likened to the way Vinay Kumar perceives the world around him- from the point of the self. He explores untethered concepts in his present creations that shall decipher an unruly relationship of currency with manipulation.
