I’m artist and author M.T. Karthik, known as Karthik or MTK.
This is a mid-career archive. Here you’ll find documentation of many things I made and performances I gave until the age of 50.
I wrote everything on this site – the poetry, essays, fiction and reviews – and produced all the video and photographs (all the images in the headers above), and in 2017, occupied mtkarthik dot org and removed advertising so you can peruse free of distractions.
Thanks to all visitors. You are welcome here.
I’m happy The MTK Independent is visited by people all over the world. Feel free to translate and post elsewhere, and if you use anything I’d appreciate a credit as M.T. Karthik or MTK
