Born and brought up in Bidasar, Churu, he moved to Jaipur to pursue the career of his dreams and graduated in bachelor in visual art, from Rajasthan school of art, Jaipur. The imaginative painter likes to paint with acrylic color in water colored style. As a quiet observer Shiv likes to drench his paintings with the things he saw and observed in his childhood. In his paintings, he likes to paint mundane things like kites, birds, balloons, toys, trays, hats but in a comical way. One can surely marvel the innocent charm of childhood memories in his paintings. He also likes to paint his artwork with quirky characters. Shiv is also fond of painting beautiful landscapes in watercolor.
“The main aim of my paintings is to evoke a sense of pleasure in me as well as the viewers. The memories of my childhood are still fresh and lively in my heart. These memories serve as inspiration for me to create innovative and gleeful paintings. I strongly believe that my paintings take the viewers down the memory lane of their own childhood and they lose themselves in their happy land filled with rapture and gratification. I paint those simplistic activities that once provided us delight like flying kite, chasing a dog or playing with balloons, hats or toys. On the other hand, I am also fond of sketching and painting landscapes as nature has always been an inextricable part of our childhood.”
