These days, the internet has taken centre stage in everyone’s life, whether it is the delivery of our favourite food or online shopping. The netizens are also able to get all the latest happenings and acquaint themselves with every bit of the trending news, making them viral in true sense. One such news is that of a Mumbai delivery man, Vishal Samjiskar, who is a passionate artist but has to do a food delivery job in order to make ends meet. This is something very common in our country, where people are unable to follow their true passion and are forced to take up a job to survive the daily struggle. However, in Vishal’s case, his true talent has been showcased in the right manner by one of the netizens, who coordinates goes by @nikhiilist, and the internet is going gaga in a true sense over the praise-worthy artworks created by Vishal.
Here are a few of the Instagram posts and tweets that helped the artist turned delivery man become famous, showcasing his ability to turn a white canvas in a beautiful portrait or develop an ordinary timepiece into a timeless artwork.

If he is willing to come to Malda, which we will pay for, we are looking for an artist to paint an Aaganwadi Centre here. Might not get paid as much but would be great exposure for his work.
