Vijay Hingorani studied chemistry at Northwestern University and biochemistry and medicine at the University of Illinois. He then trained in neurology at the University of Arizona. Following a general neurology and chronic pain practice he has spent the last several years in drug development helping to translate scientific discoveries in the laboratory to medicines that benefit patients.
Since high school he has also followed a parallel path with his artistic endeavors. During high school, in addition to drawing and painting he learned to weld and fabricate with steel while working in a small conveyor factory. In college, although his primary field of study was chemistry he also emphasized photography and served as staff photographer and photo editor of various student publications.
In more recent years his interest in three-dimensional works has grown and he has experimented with many media ranging from photography to stained and fused glass, mosaics, stone, clay, wood, and metal to painting and new media art. His current interests are primarily painting and sculpting incorporating digital design and fabrication into his workflow. Although largely self-taught he has refined his skills by participating in occasional classes and workshops.
