Muvindu Binoy

 

Muvindu Binoy is an independent film maker and digital artist based in Colombo. His bright multicolored collages appear as a Sinhalese modification of gaudily Pop Art, where he assembles various objects off the internet to hybrid figures. You will notice references to daily Sri Lankan politics, so the artist raises questions about urban socio-cultural developments of his native Colombo. The images are latent cynical, visualizing popular culture objects in combination of nostalgic vintage images of colonial photography.

Preferred format is the square, an indirect citation of the normative trimmed image-cosmos of Instagram. The variety of images popping up on screen every day is endless. While scrolling over them, images of advertisement, celebrity’s shots, politics, selfies, private family photos, art and culture, will amalgamate in front of one’s inner eye to one blunt vision of life, possibly creating one digital collage. The motifs are highlighted and framed by pastel-colored geometric shapes in evocation of digital icons. Binoy incorporates contemporary digital pictorials, his style is distinguished by a combination of straightforward constellations and aesthetic effects. His selection of colors and images signifies the takeover of a precise global hipster trend of his generation, once an urban subculture, now a glossy visual hegemony. 

Binoy held two solo exhibitions ‘The Holy Merchandise’ (2015) and ‚Divine Thru’ (2016) at Saskia Fernando Gallery and participated in the group exhibitions Colomboscope: Shadow Scenes (2015) and Colomboscope: Testing Grounds (2016). Some of his collages from the ‘The Holy Merchandise’ were selected by ‘PIX Magazine’ to be show cased in an exhibition.
