Viswam, a National Award-winner, is a Chennai-based contemporary Indian artist. Trained in the Madras College of Arts, Viswam was also a student of the acclaimed and respected Tamil Nadu artist S.Dhanapal (1919 – 2000). He is also a recipient of the AIFACS Award (Art Ache Foundation) for the 50th year of India's independence. Viswam possesses a very energetic and outgoing persona, which is aptly reflected in his attention-seeking vivacious brush-strokes. His moments of truth come into being through his oil-on-canvas abstract works, as he experiences an incomparable sense of absolute freedom during the time of creation. Simultaneously, he attempts to capture the various temperaments of nature in his works.
