Vinay’s interest in painting as a way to express himself began 30 years ago, while studying for his electrical engineering at IIT Bombay, INDIA. Over the years during his travels and assignments abroad, he has experimented with various techniques and mediums for his paintings, eventually settling down to abstracts and abstractive landscapes. This genre allows him to explore the mind and the nature.
From being ‘an engineer who loved to paint’, Vinay has now made the transition to ‘an artist who is also an engineer’. He believes one can follow this journey, this transition, this genesis of an artist by following the evolution of his paintings. The beauty of his paintings is that, they lend an ear to the viewer, wherein one can explore and listen to the resonance of nature and mind.
Vinay's painting efforts have also been greatly influenced by the tranquil surroundings of his ancestral home in Wai, Maharashtra, a place he keeps returning to, to spend many hours on the banks of the beautiful Krishna river. He finds peace and an inner spiritual experience when he paints. His expressions on canvas are interpretations of his surroundings felt from his heart. At times he even feels they are a reflection of his soul. Vinay has not adopted a specific style for his paintings. In other words, he doesn’t have an artist's 'signature' that acts as an easy identifier to his work. His paintings are a culmination of his thoughts, his emotions and his ideas. His paintings need to be 'felt' and ‘experienced’. The joy of viewing his paintings gets multiplied if one is able to feel the same emotions.
