In the Studio: Sajeev Visweswaran
In this segment of In the Studio we visit Sajeev Visweswaran in his Ann Arbor studio.
Sajeev Vadakoottu Visweswaran is a visual artist based in Ann Arbor. While he works in many media and styles, drawing always comes at the center of his work. He has maintained a focus on minimalist lines and measures etchings throughout his repertoire. Sajeev’s works draw on the tension between the mundane activities of everyday life and his political sensibilities, between his young life in village India and the world of fine art. He is fascinated by the intersection of the personal and the political, presence and absence, the domestic and the public. Sajeev received his training from the College of Art, New Delhi where he received his BFA, before completing his MVA at M.S. University, Baroda. His first solo show was held at 1,Shanthi Road, Bangalore in 2014, and his works have been selected for several exhibitions and group shows across India, as well as in Korea, Romania and France. He has attended residencies at 1,Shanthi Road, Bangalore in 2014 and the ‘Residence Price’ at the 13th Biennale Internationale de Gravure de Sarcelles, France in 2008. His work was recently selected for The Fifth Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland in Sfântu Gheorghe, Romania in 2018.
