About Vijay

 

The Artist

1946 Born – Vijay Kiyawat – a self-taught artist is emerging on the scene of Indian contemporary art. Delhi’s sprawling gardens, trees, and flowers have dominant influence in his paintings. An IIT engineer, a corporate CEO working for over 4 decades, Vijay commenced his painting career late in life. His energy comes from his optimism and love for nature, and art in all its forms. His paintings reflect his personality through subtle and vibrant colors. He is currently focusing on watercolors – a spiritual medium – the medium he loves the most.

When not painting, Vijay loves to play the piano and do birding.
