Born in Gujarat, Mehta spent his early years working as a film editor in a cinema laboratory. His love for painting and an introduction to the workings of the Bombay Progressive Artists Group redirected his path to the Sir J.J. School of Art where he graduated in 1952. From 1959 to 1964 he lived in London, and was awarded a Rockefeller Fellowship; it brought him to the United States in 1968, where his work went through several stylistic changes. He is regarded as one of India’s greatest artis (showing 500 of 2626 characters).
