Muvindu Binoy webprofile

Muvindu Binoy also known as “Bo Sedkid” is a self taught artist and independent filmmaker. As a digital artist Binoy work with different subjects facing Generation Y of his country using the letter ‘Y’ as a pun for his questioning of character and integration of the reality experienced in his artistic outcome. He observes his generational outlook, exploring terms of gender, agency, title and the expectation of traditional values contradicted by modern-emancipated standards of the digital age. Binoy never actively participated or first-hand experienced any direct effects of the Sri Lankan civil war and acts solely as an observer of the ever-present trauma that remains. Muvindu Binoy’s collages visualize popular culture objects in combination with nostalgic vintage photographs from colonial Ceylon. The motifs are highlighted and framed by pastel-colored geometric shapes in evocation of digital icons. His preferred format is the square, an indirect citation of the normative trimmed image-cosmos of Instagram. His selection of colors and images also signify the takeover of a precise global hipster trend, once an urban subculture, now a glossy visual hegemony.
