About the Artist :
Sanjay V. Kamble was born in the village of Vaduj in Satara. He had an inclination towards art early on .His jounrey began as a Freelance Illustrator doing caricatures for comics, advertising agencies and newspapers in Mumbai. An assignment that took to Dubai led him to serve as a successful Art Director and a full-time freelance illustrator including finding time for his first love - painting.
According to Sanjay, commercial art may not lead to happiness but painting can give joy and satisfy the soul. He is specially fascinated by Mumbai and its multi-cultural identity and India's vibrant rural landscapes. It is lot more painful when you are away from your soil and for him, the only way to express his emotion is by painting his people and places. He feels it is only when he is painting Indian subjects that he feels completely at home.
