Art by Thota VaikuntamThota Vaikuntam is a legendary contemporary Indian artist from Telangana, which has served as a perpetual source of inspiration for his art. His longstanding muses are the sensuous and voluptuous women of his hometown, with their omnipresent red bindis and colorful saris that highlight their dusky skin.

In order to best capture the simple lifestyle of the villagers from Telangana, art by Thota Vaikuntam uses similarly simple colors in his original paintings and fine art prints. He explains, “I like using rich, primary colors in my paintings, which give them a sense of character and depth. Red, saffron and even orange are essentially Indian colors, and I use them extensively. However, colors that are a mix of two are not natural since they don’t exist in surroundings around us, in our everyday life.”

Thota Vaikuntam completed his Bachelor’s degree in Art at the College of Fine Arts and Architecture, Hyderabad and his Master’s from M.S. University, Baroda. He has received multiple awards, including the Bharat Bhavan Biennale Award.

Can you help source original artwork by Thota Vaikuntam?

What is a serigraph?

Serigraphs are a type of high quality, limited edition screen print made on high quality paper in collaboration with the artist. Each print is numbered and signed by the artist.

What is the serigraphic printing process?

Producing serigraphs is a meticulous, completely manual process. Using the original artwork as the master guide, a different stencil is created for each color that will compose the image. Then, the ink is pushed through the corresponding stencil onto the paper and then laid flat on a drying rack. This step is repeated multiple times, using a separate stencil for each color. A single serigraphic print can have as many as 25 colors or more.

What makes a print more valuable?

The value of a serigraph is determined by the artist’s notability, the edition size and the presence of a signature. A serigraph’s most important feature is the artist’s signature, which confirms its authenticity as a genuine artwork.

Are fine art prints a good investment?

Yes, the value of a serigraph can keep increasing with time, depending on the artist’s historical importance and the specific serigraph.

Are the artworks signed?

Yes, all paintings and prints are hand signed by the artist and come with a certificate of authenticity.

Is shipping available worldwide?

Yes, we offer both domestic and international shipping, and all fees are on actuals. We frequently ship throughout the US as well as to Europe, Africa and Asia.

How are the artworks shipped?

All works including paintings, prints and sculptures are professionally packed. Smaller paintings can be shipped flat, and larger paintings can be unstretched and rolled in a tube. Prints are shipped rolled in a tube. Each shipment is covered by transit insurance.

Are exchanges accepted?

Yes, we do offer exchanges for paintings purchased by remote clients who are based in the United States. Paintings must be returned in the same perfect condition in order to be eligible for exchange. Please refer to our FAQ page for more details on our exchange policy.

Are the artworks framed?

No, neither the paintings nor serigraphs are sold framed. While it is not necessary to frame a canvas, it can be a stylistic choice and help integrate the painting with the existing decor. Meanwhile, works on paper must always be framed to properly protect them from warping and discoloration. You can read more advice about framing on our blog.

How should the artwork be taken care of?

As a resource for clients, we have written a guide on the best art care tips for canvases and works on paper.
