Vishnu Nair

Vishnu's practice explores narrative snapshots that offer a glimpse into a larger narratives. These narratives are built on undercurrents of melancholy, humour, hyperbole and the surreal. His pieces are known to coax the viewer into building a larger story around the image–building on the familiar or analogous or taking forward from a captioned cue. How a story is absorbed and enjoyed in the absence of a typical beginning-middle-end narrative structure is also fascinating. Vishnu's practice is fed by a lifetime of personal practice and 8 years of experience in fields such as illustration and design where one uses common vocabularies of narrative/culture to build value–be it the clothes a character wears to situate him, or how typeface choices are informed by the associations their forms have with institutions.
