SATISH GUJRAL


Born in 1925 , in Jhelum, in Punjab, Satish Gujral spent his early years entombed in silence due to his impaired hearing. It was during this time when the artist explored Urdu literature and ventured his imaginative journey of doodling with a pencil on paper. Finally, the artist joined the Mayo School of Art in Lahore, in 1939.

The artist has experimented his oeuvres across plastic art, graphics, paintings, sculptures, murals, object design and architecture.

Widely collected in India and abroad, the contemporary artist has been a recipient of multiple  awards such as Da Vinci Award for lifetime achievement from Mexico, Padma Vibhushan from Govt. of India  as well as honored with “Order of the Crown”, conferred by the Belgian Embassy in New Delhi.

The artist lives and works out of New Delhi.
