Ajay De: Born in 1967, Kolkata, he graduated from the city’s Government College of Arts and Crafts and did his post-graduation from Sir JJ School of Art, Mumbai. His paintings continue to be shaped by his childhood memories. As an introvert, he often found himself at a loss for words, until he discovered the joy of putting pencil to paper to draw and express his feelings. His life, and the experiences that shaped it, were a source of inspiration.
His solo exhibitions have been held at various prominent art galleries in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Kolkata, and Tokyo. He has also participated in group shows in New York, Dubai, Mumbai, Pune and New Delhi, apart from several other exhibitions organized by reputed institutions across India.
