Priyesh Trivedi

Priyesh Trivedi is a self-taught multidisciplinary visual artist and design professional working with painting, video, installation and new media. His practice is informed by examination of popular culture, anthropology, linguistics and existential enquiries.
He is most well-known for his ‘आदर्श बालक’ series which translates to ‘ideal child’. The series, comprising of illustrations and comics is a parody and critique of the educational posters that were widespread in Indian schools in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The original posters were often highly stereotypical and subliminally political in context and presentation. The artist uses the nostalgic visual language to subvert the moral propaganda and social engineering by showing the protagonist and his friends do things that they believe in instead of succumbing to societal norms and conventions. आदर्श बालक is a a reflection of the unapologetic inner child that dwells in all of us. The inner child that is silenced when individualism and non-conformity are bartered for acceptance.
The series has amassed a cult following thanks to social media and the works have been a part of many exhibitions and public art projects in India and internationally.
Priyesh was also the recipient of the Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation/Charles Wallace India Trust Award 2016 which was followed by a residency at Gasworks, London. He was also listed in 2017’s Forbes India 30 under 30.
Priyesh lives and works in Bombay.
