Indian Artist Who Uses His Tongue To Paint

This man uses his tongue to paint his artwork. He is Ani K, from Kerela, south-west India. His artwork is not one or a few, but literally more than a 1000 sets of masterpiece paintings.  

I really thought that this could be mistakable of differing from hundreds of thousands of artists worldwide who practice the conventional method using hand and coloring brushes.

Right-handed painter uses right hand, likewise, left-handed for your left. And doubly perfect if you are an ambidextrous to utilize both hands with talent.

But by tongue is somewhat quite an extreme bizarre.

As often as I have seen girls taking selfie photography with her colored stick-out tongue ‘painted’ with ice Popsicle, lest have I heard of the other way round with a talented tongue able to paint on canvas.

How the coordination between his unique tongue and creative mind is a puzzling question worth pondering in the field of cognitive development.

I guess it could possibly a challenge for him, as like, doing massive physical workout of jumping jacks with four of your limbs in different directions.

Watch this video created by Barcroft TV screening the Indian artist paints with his own tongue.

Bijay Biswaal, Self-taught Artist from Orissa, India

Bijay Biswaal is an accomplished self-taught artist from Orissa, India. And he has a day-job working for Indian Railways in the fast-growing metropolis of central India, Nagpur.

Preferred coloring mediums for Bijay Biswaal are watercolor and acrylic. Great choices of versatile paints where the latter can resemble the others for experienced painter.

He is not restrictive to be a watercolorist or acrylic painter.

Bijay Biswaal also has an enthusiastic interest of broadening his artistic skill and styles with other mediums.

Oil paintings, charcoal, dry pastel, pencil coloring and paper collage are mentioned by him. And including caricature drawings and portrait artwork.

Any artists would love to become an outstanding all-rounders for different coloring mediums.

Quite possibly someone who has the luxury of time to master it.

On the contrary, Bijay Biswaal is an ordinary man who has to secure his mundane job by the day, and passionately mastering his paintings during his leisure time.

Could perseverance and persistence motivate his obsession to enjoy painting?

Besides, there seem to be no relatable traits between an engineering-minded railway man, and a painting artist who loves creating artwork as much as his daily task for Indian Railway.

I think it’s definitely more than just a hobby for him(!). Albeit, ‘hobby’ likely refers to adolescence experimenting and trying to define a directive goal into adulthood.

His artistic skill was developed since childhood, and it could be a hobby in the past.

And now, his continual passion has cultivated him to seek endlessly for the pursuit of excellence.

What is fascinating about his composition is that there is no horizon in it; limitless possibilities to describe his artwork.

Bijay Biswaal focus totally on colors of outdoor landscape and objects. Works depicting scenes of Indian cites, people, buildings, temples and still life from flowers to rocks.

Impressionist Claude Monet painted over 250 canvas artwork for water lilies series. And there’s a cause for his repeating subjects.

Likewise for Bijay Biswaal, time off to grasp the gist of accurate colors in painting, is far more immensely painstaking than composing the art piece itself.

His positive attitude, undivided attention and genuine passion in paintings, has inspired me to blog more often. Spending time to produce better written-content.

Below sharing some of his great paintings in watercolor and acrylic.
