Born in 1988 (Andaman & Nicobar Islands), Viswanath studied painting at the Government Institute of Fine Art, Gwalior, followed by Masters in painting from the College of Art, New Delhi.
Viswanath's work is inspired by the simple life and customs of the Andamans. While the subject in his works is often borrowed from the tribal cultures, the style and technique he employs are contemporary. His medium is unique and one that he developed himself – with paraffin and beeswax, double boiled linseed oil, resin, zinc white and natural powders.
Viswanath has been awarded the prestigious Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grant in 2020, and has received the Khoj Support Grant-2020.
