Amit Srivastava (b. 1977) loves to paint and has been drawing portraits since the age of nine. An IIT-Delhi alumnus, he quit his rewarding career in IT in pursuit of his long standing passion for Arts. His artistic yearnings took him to The Ryder Studio (USA), where he studied under master painter Anthony Ryder, with classical realistic style of painting and life drawing as the focal points of his learning. While in the US, he attended several workshops by renowned contemporary artists like David Leffel and Jeremy Lipking to name a few.

His work is a synthesis of keen, careful observation and classical painting techniques; stemming from his belief that when you pay enough attention to something, it opens up to you. He likes to experiment with his style as he moves on to becoming more narrative in his artwork. Figurative works are his forte but he loves doing still life and landscapes as well. His works hang in private collections in India and the US.

He currently works out of his studio in New Delhi.
