Expressions, emotions and moments all are a part of making our life beautiful. When I sketch people, my mind lets me explore and connect with the person I’m working on. Caricature art is all about exhibiting the right person in a form that can make him identify a different personality in him.
My followers who have the art to sketch have been unsure about the career in caricature art need to explore the field just the way I did. If you have it in you, go ahead and exhibit the talent on to wider platforms. Pune gave me an identity, but my art is now also spoken about and ordered by from other corners of the country. Caricatures are not necessarily funny. They are more or less a form to make you look different, unique and altogether a side of you that you’ve rarely seen.
I capture moments through my candid style to sketch out a beautiful side of you that can make you smile in the long run.

I am from Allahabad, and I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts ( BFA) in applied arts degree from the College of Arts and Crafts in Lucknow, and a Masters in Visual Arts (MVA) in Illustration from the prestigious Fine Arts Faculty of MS University, Vadodara.
However, there is no course in India at present that teaches caricature as a specialised subject. This is something I started from a 3 month course during my graduation days and since then, have been pretty much learning through practice!
During my MS University days, I once put up an exhibition of my paintings, mostly pen-and-ink renderings of some famous buildings in Vadodara, as well as caricatures of some really famous people.
And that, as they say, was the beginning of my beautiful friendship with this lovely form of art.
After a brief stint at an animation studio in Mumbai, I moved to Pune in 2006 and this has been my home ever since. Being the in-house artist in Malaka Spice, a happening little restaurant in Koregaon Park (not so ‘little’ anymore!) gave me my first opportunity to work for fun-loving people of all kinds.
And so here I am today, Pune’s very own young caricaturist, and still Malaka’s very own artist.
What do i do ?
Quite simply, I turn anything into a caricature. I can do live caricatures of you and your loved ones, or I can make a caricature from a picture. I can preserve your special moments in a way no photograph will. I can create special-themed pictures, like put you in Matrix gear or on top of a space shuttle. I can create unique, personalised gifts for your dear ones.
I can make your weddings, birthdays and parties truly memorable. My caricatures have a way of making you feel special. And they come with a guarantee – the guarantee to bring smiles!
Thats not all !
I have also done illustrations for magazines, advertising agencies, brochures, and what not. You can check out my portfolio on this site to see the spectrum of my work. The application of this art is limited only by imagination. Through my work, I hope to spread a few smiles in people’s lives, and change the way this art is recognised in society.
Caricatures have a great future, which is apparent from the very encouraging response my work has generated. If you need further convincing, just give me one of your pictures – and I promise to bring you a smile.
