His compositions like many of his contemporaries at the time centre on the volatility of the human as well animal forms. He was married to fellow artist B Prabha in 1956, whose works resemble those of her husband’s human forms. He works canvasses as well as sculptures of the animal forms. His themes have a wide range from humans and animals incorporated with elements from his locale in Maharashtra.

Vithal lived and passed away in Mumbai, 1992.
