“Out of My Mind: Imaginative Art by Vikram Madan”

On display July 1-Sept. 30, 2023

Gallery - Vikram MadanSeattle-based author and artist Vikram Madan creates art with a sense of humor. If you’re looking to smile or let out a small chuckle this summer, stop by Blakely Hall to see our newest art gallery!

Vikram describes his art as humorous, whimsical, colorful and family-friendly. He primarily works with oils and acrylics, with the occasional watercolor pieces.

“Through my work, I hope to rekindle our lost sense of innocence and make the world a better place one smile at a time,” he said.

You can expect to see 20-30 pieces in the gallery at Blakely Hall. Some (but not all) of the artwork will be available to purchase.

Prior to honing his artistic talent, Vikram spent many years working in the tech industry. He was born and raised in India, where he wanted to be a cartoonist, but became an engineer instead. Eventually, he found the courage to follow his heart as a professional visual artist.

Vikram is also an acclaimed author and illustrator of more than a dozen books for young readers such as “A Hatful of Dragons,” “Owl and Penguin,” “Bobo and Pup-Pup” and more.

Currently, his contemporary whimsical paintings and public art appear in local shows and galleries all over the Seattle area. Learn more about the artist at
