Meet the Artist: Vikram Nongmaithem

August 21, 2014

Vikram Nongmaithem is an artist from a small town called Kakching in the Indian state of Manipur. It sits right near the border with Myanmar. Vote The Environment is Vikram's third campaign with CAN, and it's time for him to be in the artist spotlight.

Tell us how you became an artist.
I must say my artistic [interest] comes from my father. [It had always] been my dream to become an artist.

 

What’s does Vote The Environment mean to you?
As a whole, Vote The Environment' gives everyone a chance to acknowledge the right to vote [in order to] change the environment.

How do you come up with your art and what is your process for creating the image?
I take lots of reference notes from [the internet] and every possible way. Then I try to convey the message in the simplest way. Sometime I sketch out on paper but mostly in digital.

 

What are you working on these days when you’re not designing for CAN?
I am a graphic designer working as an assistant art director in a renown news magazine company called Tehelka.

 

You can see more of Vikram's work on Behance and Talenthouse.

Our book is a collaboration with Workman Publishing and 50 independent artists in support of Sunrise Movement, an organization working to slow climate change, and we'll continue to spread our message of art, activism and excitement for a Green New Deal into the future. Without further ado, here's what people are saying about our Green New Deal poster book, which can be purchased on our website and wherever books are sold. Thanks for all the love for our new book everyone!
