Subhash Vyam is a Pardhan-Gond artist who after his initial forays in clay and wooden sculpture began to practice the Pardhan-Gond tradition of stippled painting like his wife Durgabai and his acclaimed brother, Jangarh Singh Shyam. Particularly fond of blacks, his works are often simple ink on paper renditions. Even when he uses colours, Vyam often chooses to leave segments of his landscapes in black and white, with only some coloured bits. His trees, therefore, are usually rendered in black, while the birds, animals and human figures that inhabit the landscape may be coloured. Although his subjects include mythological deities and folk narratives, Vyam’s favorite subjects are aquatic life, which he learned to appreciate while growing up in the village of Sonpuri, near Patangarh. His childhood in an environment devoid of running water taught him not only of its significance as natural resource but as a parable of life. Drawing on this, Vyam authored Water, an illustrative book, part autobiography, part mythological tale and part social commentary. He has also illustrated other books, including some with his wife Durgabai.
