Mystery Unfold

Pankaj R. Vishwakarma, born in 18 April 1986 I belong to a migrant working class family from a rural village in Azamgarh district, Uttar Pradesh now settled in the industrial town of Ankaleshwar, Gujarat. I am the first in the entire family to earn a University Degree. My artistic practice stems from these experiences of growing up as a migrant in a working class neighborhood. Often troubled about the dilemmas of my belongingness my works attempts to question the very elite narratives of the object hood of art. I use industrially produced mediums like enamel paints, foils, to create my works which are though in the conventional formats of painting, prints and installations actually question these very disciplinary definitions of artwork. My works are also an interrogation into the question of how displacement and industrial landscape constantly shapes ones ideology
