Born in 1953 at Nathdwara, Lalit Sharma inherited his artistic streak from his father and master of miniature painting, Ghanshyam Sharma and completed a Master’s Degree in Drawing and Painting from the University of Udaipur. Architecture, buildings and palaces of Rajasthan, the city of Udaipur with its lakes and streets, surrounded by hills and trees, make recurring appearance in Lalit’s work, besides imagery inspired by the scriptures. Rooted in the miniature tradition, he combines sensibility of a modernist with subtle variation in forms. His canvases are larger and his medium ranging from watercolour and oil to tempera; while his compositions suggest multiple perspectives. Winner of Tulika Kalakar Parishad Award, Udaipur Gold Medal, Rajasthan Lalit Kala Academy Award thrice, AIFACS Award, and Silver Medal from Kalakan Prayas Dhanbad, the artist has also had a residency in Wales, UK. His work has featured in numerous exhibitions held at Cardiff and London in the UK, in the Netherlands, and Japan; and in India at Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Delhi, Udaipur, Chandigarh, Pune, and Chennai amongst others. It is part of the collections at Jawahar Kala Kendra and LKA in Jaipur, Taj Group of Hotels in Mumbai, and the New Library in Cardiff, besides private collections in India. Lalit has conducted workshops and has been a part of numerous art camps.
