"Born in 1973 in Latur, Anand Panchal graduated from the Abhinav Kala Mahavidhyalaya, Pune in 1997 and completed his Diploma in Art Education from the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai in 1998. He is the recipient of many awards in the field of Art & one can find his works collected around the globe. Anand is deeply influenced by rural culture and tradition. His endeavour is to project the child present within all of us, with uncomplicated dreams and joyous aspirations. His works are, in his own words, ' image expressions' from his heart and convey positive vibrations of a happy universe. Although this gifted artist has a varied palette, his personal choice is to use neutral colours with a bright tint, to express human character in its entirety. "
