Claymen

Hometown: New Delhi

Lives and Works: New Delhi

 

Aman Khanna is a graphic artist, illustrator, sculptor and a visual storyteller. After graduating in graphic and information design from London College of Communication in 2004, Aman worked in London for a year and then set up his own design studio Infomen in London and Infonauts in New Delhi, which he continues to run from New Delhi. Aman’s quirky characters and iconic forms tease viewers, drawing their attention to the pages of many international publications including Harvard Business publications, The Guardian newspaper, The Times newspaper and the Wall Street Journal.

I create these small sculptures from my observation of the common man and his dilemmas. Claymen figures come in peace and maintain silence. Although going through their own existential crises at all times they are mere spectators or observers to the notion that “man is losing his humanity and becoming a thing amongst the things he produces.”

The idea of being or being present in time and space is reflected in my choice of material – clay is a simple, everyday, raw material used by everyone. Sun dried, half baked in an open fire – clay is omnipresent and yet individual in the way one uses it. In time, the clay dissolves back into the Earth.
