Biography from a third party submitted on 04/10/2008:
A painter and sculptor, Youngo Verma was born in 1938 in Kherikalan, Haryana in India.  He graduated from Delhi College of Fine Art in Sculptural Art in 1964 and worked with Indian masters, BC Sanyal and KS Kulkarni.

After his graduation, Verma taught Art and Sculpture for few years in Jamia Millia College Delhi.  In 1971, influenced by the Bauhaus school, he moved to Germany to study art at Frankfurt Stadel College under Michael Croissant, where he further honed his skills in sculpture and bronze castings.  During his 10 years in Germany, Youngo worked tirelessly sketching, painting and sculpting from live models. He held several solo shows, group exhibitions and commissioned works. 

In 1981, he moved to Toronto, Canada.

A man of strong conviction, Verma has worked for the last four decades exploring the subtle and intense interface of light and dark, and the presence of duality in everything around us.  He has come up with expressions intended to be evocative and transporting of the viewer into a galaxy of discovery and inspiration. 

In his three-dimensional graphite sketch work, his focus is elemental forms and the capturing of human sensitivity with a goal of bringing complexity, ambivalence, tension and paradox to play upon these forms by intertwining them, inverting them, and twisting them rhythmically while giving a fine texture and plastic like effect to his drawings.

With his use of colour, form and light in his paintings, he strives to add a mystical streak that evokes eroticism.  He has incorporated Tantra in his work, while preserving the sanctity of its pristine spirit. 

Youngo has also created many sculptures, murals and installations in wood, ceramics and metal.  Some of his statues and fountain figures adorn public buildings across India, Nepal, Germany and Canada.  He has made portraits and busts of many celebrities.

There is a strong element of modernity in Youngo’s work.  His sculptures are minimalist in their form yet offering a wide variety of details for the inquisitive eye such as interplay of dark and light.  Most recently, he has been working on a series of drawings on cosmic forms.
