Artist Bio

Vijaya (b. 1983, Bilaspur), completed her MFA from Indira Kala Sangit University. She has participated in multiple group and solo shows, across the country. She won the Prafulla Dahanukar Art Foundation Grant in 2022 and also showcased her work at 62nd National Exhibition of Art by Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi. Her work presents an idea that attains a balance in the social and moral behaviour of the human with present time. Humans with all five senses used to be called a perfect creature, but imperfectness in any one sense is treated contrarily and they follow different metaphors to communicate. She uses such unusual elements of expression which the disabled persons use to learn and communicate.She is attracted to the mystery and transformative power of the metaphor “Braille Text”. In her early investigations her attention was primarily focused on the beauty in touch and experience of the knowledge that existed in Braille. Accordingly her work formulated towards the social gesture with visual specifications.
