Conversation with
Jayaram Poduval

Jayaram Poduval: Most of the catalogues reveal the artist Binoy Verghese since his return from Canada and I am certain that it is merely a singular step in your creative repertoire. I am fascinated to know what made Binoy Verghese the painter. So let me start with a very vital but a routine query. Why did you choose the field of art?

Binoy Varghese: My family was inclined towards art. While visiting my maternal uncle’s house in my childhood I used to enjoy the music and singing by my maternal uncles, one a harmonist and the other a singer. Even my parents showed a great interest in music and art and encouraged me and my siblings to be very active in school competitions. We used to sing devotional songs every evening at home.
