I was born in 1952 at Nadiad, gujarat,
India. From my very childhood
poems and literature would delight my
inner elements like mind, heart, ego, etc.
Even in those
days I always try to express my views,
dreams and ideas with the help of poems,
colors and words.
This process gradually led me to be a
self- taught painter and a writer.
I graduated in commerce in 1972. After
working as an Assistant Manager in a
very big company for 18 long years, I
started my own education academy in Ahmedabad.
I did my first show of Compu-Paintings
in 2000 at Contemporary Art Gallery,
Bansilal Dalal, the art critic, had
mentioned that it was the first of a
kind one man show in Gujarat. After that I did few more
one man shows of paintings in Gujarat,
India. I had participated in painting exhibitions
and competitions and had achieved quite
a few awards.
My work and new experiments of compu-
painting were recognized and appreciated
by many news papers, magazines, artists, TV channels and art
lovers. Besides these I had arranged art
competitions for the school children up to 16 years
through my academy at Maninagar,
I have been in MA., USA, since April 2014. I have submitted many paintings to
the Museum of Computer Art NY. My paintings were
selected by MOCA as a Director's Choice
Award in 2015 and 2016.
With my other hobby of literature a
novel author emerged in me and I wrote a
book of 723 pages named "SHRIMAD BHAGWAT JIVAN
PARAG," based on Indian mythology and
philosophy in traditional Indian
I firmly believe that the new methods,
modern means and wide and deep sight of
the new generation will lead the computer art
to the world of dreams and images. This
Digital Art will give the new shape, forms and colors to
the fiction wonderfully and scientifically.
I congratulate to Don Archer and
appreciate the services of MOCA for this
modern digital art and art lovers.
