Born in 1939 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, Manu Parekh completed his Diploma in Drawing and Painting from the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai, in 1962. Parekh compels the viewer to feel the emotion, pain and anguish expressed in the subjects of his paintings. The colors and forms in his art exude an energy that can’t be contained within the confines of his canvas, and become an extension of the artist's personality. Parekh’s early work explored the relationship between man and nature. The city of Banaras plays an integral role in his work, since his first visit there after his father’s death.
