Tushar mainly paints from life and plein air (French term for outdoors) in oil colours but occasionally enjoys painting objects and has transitioned from painting portraits to landscapes in recent years.

BACKGROUND:

Tushar grew up in the Indian suburbs surrounded by lush green farms and vineyards. He was taught the basics of art under his guru and art professor, Girish Sahadeo, but also gained a lot of his knowledge through independent study and practice. His artistic talent became evident in the very early years of his life. Annual summer vacations at his grandparent’s countryside home were very inspiring to the young artist who spent most of his time drawing and sketching the scenery, always managing to capture the rustic allure of the Indian countryside.

At the age of just 12 years old, Tushar won first prize and a National Award in a Drawing Competition amongst 1 million students who participated that year across the whole of India.

A year before that at the age of 11, he was amongst the top 2 winners in a similar national level painting competition and has continued to win many state, national and international awards for his paintings.

His passion in the field of art led him to choose Architecture at university. After completing his Bachelor’s degree, he decided to further explore art in the field of Design and thereafter undertook a Master’s Degree course wherein he studied Product Design, from one of the leading institutes in India, The Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi.

Tushar embarked on his professional career as a Creative Designer, designing watches for multinational brands like Timex as also other such companies. His move to London in 2006 saw him working for a design patent company that helped aspiring designers to conceptualise their ideas into working products. His experience also includes designing pieces for Hollywood movies while as a designer for a high-end jewellery brand.

Even with his professional success as a designer, there was something Tushar had ignored which was his innate need to paint. After few years of sabbatical, he rekindled his love affair and went back to his canvases and paintbrushes and has not looked back since.

After being a weekend painter for years Tushar now paints full time.
