Through his artwork, S. Vijayraghavan is determined to exploit the potential of socio-political, personal and emotional expressions developed with the help of his personal politics and consciousness. His drawings and mixed media artworks evolve through a process that has immense complexity, combines subversive expressions while juxtaposing the realm of linear sensibilities that help an artist to produce abbreviated expressions with the reality of the mundane experiences of human life. He tries to articulate these experiences in an implicit, allegorical and symbolic way. The notion of these activities and the varied interrelated images and objects help him develop a visual conversation which acts as a vehicle for the many dichotomies of rhetoric. This rhetoric is often expressed in the following binary terms: purity and kitsch, noise and melody etc.
