Born in 1975 in Solapur, a small town in southern part of Maharashtra. After completing my schooling in Solapur, I migrated to Pune for higher studies and pursued degree in Applied Art from Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya in 1999.
I worked as a freelance Illustrator for few local/ regional ad agencies and publications during my academic years. Started and successfully run a design firm in partnership for 3 years in Pune. There after I relocated to Mumbai for better prospects and experience. I gained experience working with several leading advertising agencies and media houses like Lowe Lintas, Cartoon Network, Redifussion DYR, Dentsu, M&C Saatchi.
Besides, I also pursue Cartooning, Caricaturing as my hobby. I was associated with several publications like Femina, Tata Infomedia, Firstpost.com, Yourstory.com and and created mascots for several small and big brands Future Group, Saint Gobain India, Bajaj Auto, GNO, Sriram Foods etc. Received recognition by several awards and nominations on national and international level in this area.
Inherently, I realised my passion is in painting and therefore over the past 8 years I have been working and exploring new subjects and techniques to create diverse portfolio. So far I have participated in 2 group shows, 3 solo shows.
That’s all about me!
Thank you 🙂
