Biography from Saffronart:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

"Things change as you grow older. Subconsciously, I was always an artist. I remember I asked for a box of oils, when someone was going abroad in our family at the age of 12 years. Since then, I have always been closely in touch."

An accountant by profession Jehangir Jani, took up art full-time when he was 33. "A passion to be, to find his own God, to be defined as himself and not as a part of a group", as he likes to put it, is what drives Jehangir Jani in his work. "It is said that I am an individual, but I belonged to a group. I feel sad to see so many lives on accepting their lot, knowing no better. One should not succumb to the herd instinct. I have tried to capture the dynamism of an individual."

A self-taught artist, Jani does not tie his brush to any particular style. His style is not governed or restricted by any school of thought, other than his own inspiration. It has been arrived at by a process of elimination. Also, Jani shies away from labels, stressing that he is glad he did not go to an art school that "tends to kill reaction and gut feeling. I absorb the reality of every day events as they are seen and not as they are taught." Jani works with different medium like sculptures, ceramics, fibreglass and sheet metal and has participated in several group and solo exhibitions.

He has also conducted workshops in terracotta. His most recent exhibition was of works in fibreglass and sheet metal, evocatively titled. 'Stories'. After having dabbled in watercolour, Jani says that he has eventually found his true medium of expression in sculpting. 'My inspirations span from Graeco-Roman, Christian and Islamic myths to contemporary issues," he adds.

Jehangir Jani lives and works out of Mumbai.
