Vivek Mathew’s tryst with photography began with a simple thought – capturing the brilliance of a moment. Doing what he does best, Vivek today, has travelled the world and experienced the essence of life, through his camera lenses. And it is an addiction he never wants to get over.

Having completed his education at Asia’s top notch institution – The Light and Life Academy, Ooty – Vivek has gone on to bring life into Fine Art, Architecture, Travel, Nature, People and Interiors, through his photography. Considered as one of the “Young and Unusual” photographers of today by the India Today Magazine, he has also been featured in prestigious publications – The
Times Journal of Photography, Time Out, Design Today, Better Interiors, National Geographic Traveller India, Forbes India, Smart Photography, Bangalore Mag, The Times of India, Femina, and Women's Wear Daily -New York

Adding perspective to his works are his exhibitions, which have brought to light several aspects of daily life. I.Opener in 2005 at the ‘Renaissance Gallerie’ focused on subjects ranging from still life to portraits to exteriors, as Waterborne in 2007 at ‘Industree’, experimented with ripples, reflections and patterns. His third exhibition at ‘Sublime’, UB City in 2011 – Canvas wall – was inspired by the rustic and the crude. His fourth and most recent exhibition, Perfect Imperfections, in February 2015 at the ‘Art of Delight’ dealt with nature and man-made pattern.

Vivek has also been a part of several commercial projects and ad campaigns, the most prominent one being that of Bangalore Traffic Police’s “Don’t Drink and Drive” initiative. Manipal Education, First Flight, Lenovo, Volvo, The Leela Hotel, Home Solutions, Sterling Developers, Shell, Vimal, Bosch, Thought Works, Nikon, Wrigleys, Tata Global Beverages, Ubuntu, Indus Strong Steel, Minster, Thann, Chancery Hotel and Belmonte, are a few of his other commercial endeavours to be named.

In his enthusiasm towards the art of photography in itself, he has also contributed to two coffee table books – The Laidlaw Memorial High School, Ketti, Nilgris, for their 100 years and Best of Bangalore Vol .2 Innovation Edition.

His pictures have also been appreciated, alongside various other artists in several group exhibitions such as;
