Right from my childhood, I was very keen towards art that I always found myself painting signboards, stickers for vehicles and I even learnt stone inscriptions. This eventually led to me and my friend setting up VINOTH ARTS at a very young age.
I completed my Visual Communication degree in Government college of Fine Arts, Chennai. It was during this time that my identity as Artist 6 was created as I had to exhibit my collection of photographs (Paarvaigal 2014) in an exhibit.
Once I graduated, I explored in the vast ocean of art and used to exhibit my works at art galleries during weekends. My life took a huge turn when Black ray creatives approached me for creative works. I was introduced to the world of digital design and social media.
Before I entered zoho, I had worked in two other companies gathering experiences and improving myself. In 2012, I was approached by Jack, founder of Madrasters, who invited me to be a part of this design community. As the first Tamil Speaker in the group, I promoted the mother language in designer community and decided to do Tamil Typography. I dedicated my second tamil typo to Madrasters, the first being typo for AMMA APPA and I had it tattooed on my arm. Tamil typo started trending in 2017 but I moved to the next level of blending English and Tamil words having same meaning.
I feel that teaching tamil typography to fellow designers will be my next step and I welcome young talents who are willing to learn A to Z in tamil typography.
