Nitin Sulabh Banwar.

Born in 1952 in central India.

My father was in the Indian Navy,therefore our family moved frequently .This exposed us to multiple cultures,languagesand lifestyles while we were young.My three other siblings live in Australia,India and Sweden .Being a voracious reader I exposed myself to the literature,art and mythology ,not only of the east but also of the west.

My graduate education was in medicine in India.I subsequently came to the US via Europe(Sweden)and completed my graduate training in the US in Orthopedic Surgery.In both Europe and the US I immersed myself in art.During first three years in the US I worked as a freelance artist(not very successfully)and in a gallery/ frameshop in Atlanta, I awaited my greencard.Those years were the most influential on my artistic career(I was the proverbial starving artist).

I am now a practicing orthopedic surgeon in Upstate NY.

My profession is very art is it's subjective counterbalance.At this point in my artistic developement ,I have developed a unique and distinctive style fusing elements of my Indian heritage with influences from eastern, western and tribal art . Recently my profession as a surgeon has inspired a new form of collaboratve art.Original art,biologically influenced industrial design and digital art.A personal expression of a global perspective .

Since 2010 ,in collaboration with A.J.Dungan,a digital abstract artist, a completely new series of digital art has been created.We have combined digital photography and colorizing in an amalgam with industrial design and my original art.Our first series has used orthopedic implants used in hip and knee reconstructive surgery.A new series using neuroanatomy is in the works as is a third related to general aviation.

My other passions are books(I have that gentle madness),bicycling,skiing and flying.I am an avid aviator and am an instrument rated private pilot(another balance of the objective/subjective).My studio is at my home in Canandaigua,NY where I live with my family,my books and my esoteric collection of art.
