Born in 1966 in Chandigarh, Tejinder Kanda completed his BFA from the Government College of Art in Chandigarh and taught art for a few years before taking to painting as a fulltime freelance artist. His rhythmic expressions on canvas captivate the ambience of life with all its trappings, with people busily engaged in their daily routine. His renditions, in small and big sizes, of rural India and hill towns feature the buzz of bazaars and street life, festivals and temples. His colourful palette in dense textures is an attempt to capture the social history of contemporary India. He has participated in many shows held at Delhi, Chandigarh, Shimla, Ambala, Mumbai and Bangalore, from where his work has been picked up by collectors from around India and abroad. The artist lives in Delhi and works from his studio in the city.
