I, Manojkumar Mahaveer Sakale, was born in 1975, at Nandre, a small village near Sangali in Maharashtra, India. After finishing schooling in the village, I studied painting at Kalavishwa Mahavidyalaya, Sangali. Later on I studied further in the field of fine art at Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya at Pune.

In the initial stages only, Representational Art got deep rooted in my being. After completing formal studies in 1997, for some period, I worked in the Academic style and created Landscapes, still life and portraits. Portrait painting is my favourite subject and my profession also. I received many awards right from my student life from various Art Institutions and Art Societies in India.

Then I started painting village characters in watercolour and oil. While doing this, the space division and a different approach to composition started getting importance in my paintings. The experimentation of using the medium to bring about the beauty was also one of the prime concerns in the creations of that time. The cultural characters of Maharashtra, which has a rich and aesthetic heritage, are now getting extinct. They have appealed me to paint them relentlessly. These paintings fetched me again many awards in Professional category.

In 2005, I had a solo exhibition of my paintings at the prestigious Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai; this initiated a new phase of my life. My childhood was nurtured by the simple joys of village life and these blissful moments reflected in my paintings of this era. I created many paintings on the questions, gaiety and life of the childhood. In my series, I used as collage, photographs and titles of newspapers as symbols to get different textural quality. Through these paintings, I tried to make statement about the philosophy of Life. One of the paintings was awarded by the Camlin Art Foundation and I was selected for the prestigious Euro Art Tour which brought me an in -depth study of the actual paintings of the Western Masters. Simultaneously, The Bombay Art Society awarded me the prestigious Bendre Hussain Scholarship. This style acclaimed awards from many other Art Institutions. I have given many demonstrations; have also conducted workshops in Art Institutions and Art Colleges in Maharashtra and Gujarat. My Paintings are in collection of various art connoisseurs in India and abroad.

At present, established in Mumbai, the main hub of art world, I am still working on the same subject to emphasize the different perspectives of the educational and other aspects of urban and rural childhood. I emphasize to lighten the weight of this subject with gleeful rendering, with the use of newspaper and other elements as the subject related devices.

Many exhibitions have taken place, still, this subject inspires the artist and the child within me to explore in depth the Subject and innovate techniques to render the same.
