Anand M Bekwad, born in Pune, Maharashtra obtained a diploma in Drawing and Painting from Belgaum, Karnataka.
Anand picks landscapes and floral art as his favourite themes. He started off by painting landscapes before he was drawn to florals and themes related to nature. “Though I mostly work with watercolour on paper, for florals I prefer using acrylic,” he says. In the paintings that focus on nature, through deep colours he brings to life the full blooms flanked by majestic trees and vines.
