Kerala born and Dubai raised Mithun Jayaram graduated with a Fine Art Honours Degree through LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts, Singapore in 2004. Upon graduation, he was awarded a scholarship to undertake a research trip to Romania where his experiences were documented and published. He has collaborated with numerous award-winning artists in Singapore and has participated in a number of exhibitions in Singapore and India that have been critically well received.
Though Mithun finds himself exploring textures and ideas of transience/ frailty/ recyclability through various media, he identifies his art-self with labour-intensive installations that helps him and his audience to re-look common materials (pencils, matchsticks, toothpicks, etc) found in stationary shops, supermarkets or even our homes. The sharing of the art-making experience is what he considers of greater value, than the final product.
