Contact Sandeep Johari through this mailform.
Johari was born on the 7th of April 1964 in the town of Bareilly
- India. Colors have been a part of Sandeep Joharis life ever
since he was 4 years old. His family considered him to be gifted
by God. The intricate work on the paintings of Gods drew him like
moth to fire.
Sandeep johari created a first illustrated storybook for children called "Hanuman's Journey to the Medicine Mountain". A second, on the figure of Karna, will come out end of 2007.
Harish Johari noticed
him when he was almost 12 years of age. As he himself did not have
too much time due to frequent trips abroad, he took Sandeep to a
man he considered to be his own teacher Master Chandra
Bal. Under his tutelage Sandeep learnt to appreciate the hard
work and discipline behind every piece of art. After 12 years of
being guided by his teacher and imbibing Harish Joharis influence,
Sandeep started actualizing his own ideas.
years were spent in active pursuance of a career in advertising
before he was again drawn to the brush. This time he started on
an ambitious series the Hanuman
series. This was followed by another interesting concept quite different
from his usual style the cleaning of brushes (see image on
the left). Sandeep continues to work on the Hanuman series as well
as on individual paintings of the Hindu
According to Sandeep he owes a lot to Harish Johari
who often used him as his punching bag. He feels that treatment
got his back up and made him prove himself in advertising as well
as painting. Once he was sure he had driven all complacence out
of Sandeep just a few days before his death, Harish Johari told
Sandeep that he was a true follower. Committed to Harish Joharis
tradition, Sandeep wants to challenge his own boundaries and do
something new all the time.
