Aman Khanna is a graphic artist, illustrator, sculptor and a visual storyteller. After graduating from London College of Communication in 2004, Aman set up 2 studios, 'Infomen' in London and 'Infonauts' in New Delhi. Aman has received much critical acclaim for his work by the Harvard Business Review, The Guardian, The Times and The Wallstreet Journal.
He spent 8 years focusing on two-dimensional design and more recently began to explore working with clay. His inspiration comes from the admiration of his surroundings and the common man who inhabit that space. He says, ‘Claymen figures come in peace and maintain silence. Although going through their own existential crises at all times they are mere spectators or observers to the notion that “man is losing his humanity and becoming a thing amongst the things he produces.” The idea of being or being present in time and space is reflected in my choice of material - clay is a simple, everyday, raw material used by everyone. Sun dried, half baked in an open fire - clay is omnipresent and yet individual in the way one uses it. In time, the clay dissolves back into the Earth.’
