Born in 1976 at Fatehpur, Uttar Pradesh, Vijendra S Vij is an independent working artist in the realm of modern abstract art in the Indian tradition.Vijendra's works are made of both simplified drawings and detail rendering along with vibrant use of color. His use of color works better with simplified shapes along with small details he often uses in his works. Few works have very bright and unnatural colors that are most of the time unblended. Most areas are painted flat; in his compositions, there is no attempt to 3-D renderings. His brushwork is very bold; some area of the canvas might stay unpainted in few of his works. A dark or black outline around some elements is usually present. There is an emphasis on the emotional quality of color, warm and cold colors are often juxtaposed to add excitement. Some of his works are with a non-detailed drawing and bold brushstrokes, and others are quite focused and detailed drawings with inscription and verses. These works exemplify his expression of individual thought and feeling achieved through the creative process. As he seeks to share his experiences, observations, and understanding (his "truths") through his paintings and drawing that most effectively lends itself to his personal skills and abilities.

Very interesting series by Vijendra, titled “Delusion at midnight” comprises of paintings with reclining figures and drawings in pen and ink. The delusions are generally fantastic, often with a supernatural, science-fictional, or religious bent. And these state of mind are vividly expressed in gestures and colors of the compositions in the series. The delusions in these works are characterized by fantastical beliefs that one is famous, omnipotent or otherwise very powerful. Vijendra uses these dogmas and belief of strong conviction when he even knows superior evidence to the contrary.

Another of Vijendra series titled “Lovers” is yet another set of works showing various facets of eternal feeling of love. In these works he is not talking about just two people who are in romantic relationship with another, he also explains a person who has a strong enjoyment or liking for something, as specified: a lover of music. A person who loves, especially a person who has or shows a warm and general affectionate regard for others, a lover of mankind.

His subjects and its explanation in not just a copy of a real object, however skillful, not just a piece of decoration, however clever, but something more relevant and lasting than either. In his works titled “Shikast” he construes the trait of defeat. This defeat, failure, setback, outfight is subtly portrayed in the gestures of the subject. There is another co-related meaning of the word Shikast, broken or fractured which is again evident in the dealing of the subject in the painting of this series. These works share certain expressive elements, such as structure, theme, and tone.

    Vijendra S Vij: My Father Was Not Bowled Over Easily !

    “You just stood afar and looked at a trailblazers far fetched dream, Those zigzag lines made me helpless, If you had wanted you could have built a coloured wall around me.” I had written this when my father used to taunt me about art and say ‘what is this color and all, what career will this be, will you paint a sign board, we want you to become a doctor or engineer’. I used to get very frustrated by this and that is when I started writing. (according to his father )He had an interest in art that kept increasing. We were not encouraging him, as we wanted him to pay attention to studies and did not want him to get into the field of art. Symbols such as birds, dogs are usually seen in my paintings, flowers too. I am not painting nature but you will find elements from it. Yellow-ochre colour is always used in my paintings. Art is a meditation to me without which I do not feel satisfied. My elder sister used to paint very well; she was my first inspiration. There is no specific rule in art, I would just like the viewer to think about what he/she relates to in art, how they correlate with it. Art is a way to communicate for me, like how writing is to others.

It is the only gallery where buyers meet the artists directly. The process of buying paintings online through Mojarto.com is easy and effortless. It is a good and useful online platform for established as well as upcoming artists. I have been associated with Mojarto.com, for quite some time now. Owing to my age and reduced mobility, I can easily share my creations online with the rest of the world. This is very interesting and magical feature of Mojarto.com.
