Hailing from the village in Telangana, Thota Vaikuntam fills his canvases with scenes and figures from his village. The women, men and their daily chores, the paddy fields came to life with his palette of rich and earthy shades. He is notable for his women centric work which is a reflection of his love for his mother, Satyamma, who to him was a fountain of creativity. Strong women and other motherly figures also inspired him. Later on, other figures of priests, labourers, farmers and teachers found a place in his work. Working with charcoal, pen or ink, and usually water colours, his works bear a testimony to his love for his village, rural life, its people, and their innocence. Gradually he started using more colours to his series on Telengana women which was widely appreciated by people and earned him a lot of accolades. The colours from their bright saris, decorative designs, the typical features of the women, and utterly dark complexion continue to colour his canvases which is his most beloved subject. His art is showcased both in India and abroad.
