After a series of unfortunates like the sudden-developed back pain and the loss of his mother several months after that, Vignesh fell in the pit of despair. He could not walk more than a few steps at a time, and the engineer career which he’d sweated blood and tears to earn requires him to stand most of the working hours.

Vignesh is a self-taught artist from Tamil Nadu. Each of his paintings sometimes takes a month to complete.


Vignesh's artwork - intricate sketches of famous personalities like Virat Kohli to detailed portraits of family - are as captivating as the journey that led him to it. "I didn't switch to art for the money," he notes as we sit down for a chat. "I just switched to it to get rid of my negative thoughts, my depression."

This is an inspiring story of how one individual overcame personal adversity and used art as a medium to heal and create.
