“As Michelangelo said, every block of stone has a statue inside and it’s a sculptor’s task to discover it. Well, I am a person obsessed with the form and shape of things, on an ever-ongoing road to discovery”
Having realized his passion for art from an early age Vichar studied the discipline throughout his education receiving his Masters in sculpting from the Chamarajendra Academy of Visual Arts. Vichar soon began his career as a traditional sculptor, it was during this time Vichar had the privilege to work as a personal sculptor for the King of Mysuru, an undeniable highlight of his career.
The craving to learn new things soon sparked Vichar’s fascination in computer generated art. The idea of bringing sculptures to life using technology was always incredibly alluring for Vichar, and soon provided him with endless opportunities to push and develop his passion for sculpture into a new world.
