Thota Vaikuntham

Thota Vaikuntam (born 1942) is an Indian painter.[1] His paintings capture simple lifestyle of villagers like the paddy fieldstoddy pots on shoulders of men, the household chores, temple rituals etc. His drawings range from stark charcoalon paper, transparent washes and pencil drawings.


Vaikuntam paints colorful and elaborately dressed Telangana region men and seductive women. His muse is the sensuous and voluptuous women of Telangana with their omnipresent vermilion bindis, draped in colourful sarees that highlight their dusky skin.

The stylisation of a painting are a perfect foil to Indian classical dance as the figures seem to dance, as if following their creator in a statuesque movement, reminiscent of temple friezes.[3] He uses the brightest of reds and yellows. The simple women become larger than life as they fill the small format of his paintings draped in bright Sircilla saris.

He also worked as art director for the film, Daasi, which received a National award.[4] He also worked on Maa Bhoomi (1979), Matti Manushulu and film was made based on story as Rangula Kala, which displayed the range of his work as young upcoming painter.
