Anunay Rai

Anunay Rai

Born: 1980

Hometown: Lucknow

Based in: Gurugram

Having spent about 17 years in Advertising and Design, Anunay got exposure to different forms of creative expression. After winning several International and National Awards in the field of advertising, he quit his job to pursue Art full-time in mid-2021.

A prior design background makes it seamless for Anunay to bring in the additional dimension of materiality in his work. His work questions the fixed notion of beauty and explores the sculptural potential of paintings.

The tussle between a spiritual and secular life is the stimulus for his expressions.

He uses a spectrum of mediums which range from traditional art materials to concrete, coal, sawdust and ash. He does not curb his expressions and uses digital mediums.

His recent work ‘Tangible Tenacity’ is part of the 2022 Lumen Prize Longlist (Still Image category).

He is currently working on his first Solo Show to be held in Lalit Kala Akademi (National Academy of Art) in October 2022.

More About Anunay Rai

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Being a spiritual seeker the success and failure on the path is my inspiration. The stimulus from the outer world when processed internally is the source of my creation blended with the experiments with materials.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I create my own substrates to work on. It ranges from concrete to cement mixed with paper and fibre. The abstraction starts at the stage of substrate creation, where often random objects leave their impression and sometimes become a part of the work. The spontaneous impressions are a starting point for me to then work on with paints, pigments, coal, sawdust to even cow dung. Wood and wires hold them together both physically and conceptually.

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Flowing, Strong and Textural

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Make something every day, even if it’s a mistake.
