Vrishchik, which means scorpion, was a monthly magazine founded by Gulammohammed Sheikh in 1969. Published from Baroda, the magazine was edited by artists Gulammohammed Sheikh and Bhupen Khakhar until its last issue in 1973. Vrishchik became an active forum for contemporary artistic and literary expressions, and also a catalyst for artists' views on the art field, art institutions, and social concerns. The magazine featured an array of content that included poems, stories, critical essays, and folios of printed artworks.

More details about Vrishchik can be found on Gulammohammed Sheikh's interview 'Vrishchick and Lalit Kala' on the website 'Web of Stories', Geeta Kapur's article 'Signatures of Dissent' on Art India Magazine (Vol 6, Issue 2, Quarter 2, 2001, Mumbai) and Piyush Thakkar's article 'Gulammohammed Sheikh and Many Literatures' on Guide Art Journal (Issue 1, Guide Art Gallery).
