Paper Showman Vinay Sharma

Vinay Sharma’s installation 'Rhythmic Past' at the Government Museum, 23rd September, 2019 to 25th October, 2019 Sector 10, transports the viewer to a setting in bygone era of Rajasthan. The installation comprising of human figures; men, women, children, recreate a scene from the past. Vinay has a penchant for old radios. His private collection comprises of 350 old radios, many of them in working condition. Here on display are 40 -50 radios, old parchment, quill, ink pot and his own paintings on canvas. These different memorabilia create an interesting interplay of form and space. A figure is strategically placed on the first floor and a roll of paper hangs down creating a movement for the eye, reflecting his astute vision to connect different levels.

Vinay sensitivity as an artist and creative ability came across in the audio visual presentation held in Mini Tagore Theatre, 25th September,2019 Chandigarh. He sheds insight on his technique of paper making, printing (Oil Based Serigraphy), various painting media and themes he experiments in.

Hailing from a small village of Rajasthan, the rural village colours, textures and sounds resonate in his work. Popularly known as paper-man he dresses up with paper, truly a spectacle… a paper showman in the art world.
