Shinod Akkaraparambil

Shinod Akkaraparambil asserts the moral rights to live in this world. His works revolve around the multitudes of urban life, congestion, stress, strain and competition. He questions the reality of Social Darwinism in the daily lives of competing urban citizens. The characters and imageries portrayed in his art projects are products of an artist's imagination developed from his humble childhood unlike the experience he had later living in several fast-growing cities in India. He lived as a street artist after migrating to the national capital Delhi from Malabar in kerala. 
He has won several awards, and exhibited his works in India as well as abroad. He is currently working on a large installation that combines his roots and present-day concerns.
