About Aman Khanna
Aman is a graphic artist, sculptor, and a visual storyteller. After graduating in graphic and information design from London College of Communication in 2004, he set up his own design studio 'Infomen' in London in 2005 and 'Infonauts' in New Delhi in 2009
Over the past few years, he has increasingly gravitated towards ‘clay’, the most common and ancient medium used by humans to create everyday objects. Clay, he writes “Has added a new dimension to my work. With this medium, I began to explore the third dimension, creating small clay sculptures and objects that are inspired by my surroundings and the people living in them. I call them Claymen."
These objects add aesthetic by taking it away. They simply are what they are: a celebration of a style that lives at peace with its own little imperfections. Some are functional, they are handmade, and are built to be used. Some incarnate the dysfunctionality intrinsic to society by hinting at the fragility of the human condition in a more general sense. The Claymen figure sculptures emerge from a careful observation of the common man and his dilemmas. While going through their own existential crises, they are mere witnesses to the fact that “Man is losing his humanity and becoming a thing amongst the things he produces.”
