AJOY KUMAR

Ajoy Kumar D who draws under the nom-de-plume ‘AJOY’ was born on 02th April 1970, at Trivandrum as the son of P. Dayanandan and Vasanthy.

After doing his schooling in Kerala, Ajoy kumar did his M.A.Concept Art for Game and Animation in the United Kingdom. He also obtained his B.A. degree in Digital Character Animation from Tesside University, Middlesbrough as also an HNC in Animation from Scotland. He further did a short course in Film Production in The Cultural Foundation in Abu Dhabi, a course in Macromedia Flash from Dubai and completed the DHMS from Padiyar Memorial Homeo College.

His first cartoon was published in ‘Chandrika’ and ‘Madhyamam’, which, later grew into a number of Solo and Group Painting Exhibitions held in Kerala , AbuDhabi , UAE and the U.K. The spree of prizes in cartooning/caricaturing began in 1983-90 during his School / college days. In 1992, he received First Prize in the State Caricature Contest conducted by the Kerala Cartoon Academy.

Nationwide attention was bestowed on Ajoy with the second prize at the Hindustan Times Annual Cartoon Contest, 1992 for the sterling caricature of the crestfallen Sanjay Dutt, Hindi Film Star who was hit by a barrage of seditious charges of abetment to terrorism. This was followed by a 3rd prize in 1993. His caricatures were published in 2003 & 2004 catalogues of the Zemun Caricature Contest. On the animation side, he received 2nd Prize for the short film project competed during course in 2003.

CARICATURES


Ajoy's GURU, Artist Kaladharan of Orthic Creative Centre, Ernakulam
with his immaculate bushy beard and facial features always invited caricaturists
like flies to fire. Incidentally, this man happens to be one of the very few in the
artist community of Kerala (or anywhere in the world?) ,
ready to declare cartoonists as family, an act most artists shun from doing
due to various artistic factors destined against their favour .

In Ajoy's own words, 'success of this caricature
was a stroke of luck in his career'. Suddenly, in 1992,
attention of cartoon lovers from all over India
was falling on this young Malayali.

Ajoy, my first encounter with you was from behind,in 1994 at Trivandrum at the opening of a gallery at Vellayambalam. From a disadvantage point, I noticed a youngster dishing out clean caricatures of every VIP on the dias ! You were in the full glory of the HT Award.

Now, years after, I feel happiness to see that you have been treading the same clean road lines to what you are now. And our Art is safer with believers like you in the eastern cult of Gurutwam.

We back here have lots to learn from any cartoonist in that continent, who sees this art not as a refuge of the fugitive but as HOME.

Best Wishes, my dear friend !

When we finally consider the concept of the saying enjoy, installing regards to a close association utilizing one more, but for a feeling that could be engendered in case you have miltchmonkey a much better relationship with yourself also ( space ) or maybe to be a a sense larger oneness with your family as well as human beings -- therefore it gets to be even more crystal clear that all anybody is looking to get in life is really like.
