Meet The Swiggy Delivery Executive Viral On Twitter For His Artwork

Vishal Samjiskar has impressed Twitter with his artwork.

Vishal Samjiskar, a delivery partner with food delivery platform Swiggy, has captured Twitter's attention with his artwork. On Monday, a Twitter user named Nikhil shared a few images of the artist and his work on the microblogging platform, where they went viral and left thousands impressed. The paintings, shared on Twitter, have earned 39-year-old Mr Samjiskar compliments like "talented" and "brilliant".

"This is Vishal. He delivered my Swiggy order today. He's an artist and he is looking for work," wrote Nikhil while sharing the photos, which include a picture of the Mumbai-based artist painting a clock and one of him in his Swiggy uniform. "Do let me know if you would like to get a painting/wall art commissioned. I can put you in touch with him."

The tweet garnered nearly 12,000 'likes' and was inundated with compliments, job offers, and comments from people looking to get in touch with Mr Samjiskar, prompting an update with a link to his Instagram page.

The viral tweet even led to a response from Swiggy, saying they would "reach out to the delivery partner to assist in anyway we can."

"I didn't know that he (Nikhil) had tweeted about me," Mr Samjiskar tells NDTV. "When I went to deliver his order, he asked me if I wanted water and we started talking.

"He asked me what I do and I told him I'm an artist. I think he liked my work and so he tweeted about it. I got to know he tweeted when he called me."

On his Instagram page, Mr Samjiskar describes himself as "a painter by profession and a delivery boy by compulsion."

"Would love to earn my daily bread through my hobby and passion," he writes.

Vishal Samjiskar tells NDTV that since the tweet went viral, he has received a number of calls from people looking to get commissioned artwork. "Achcha lag raha hai (It feels good)," he says.
