Biography

Sanjay Vora, who holds degrees in both painting and architecture, says his first creative impulses were not toward fine art, but music—particularly classical Indian music. Later on, Vora’s interest in both art and music developed simultaneously: “Both my music and art have been strongly influenced by my bicultural upbringing, the surrounding rural landscapes of my childhood and my nostalgic nature,” he has said. His process combines figurative imagery with abstract, sculptural techniques. For each work, Vora begins by painting scenes from personal memories or family snapshots, before covering the entire surface with a gel plaster and carving into it to reveal parts of the painting beneath.
