About Paranjape Studio

Artist Ravi Paranjape

Artist Ravi Paranjape is an eminent illustrator, painter and a writer based in Pune, with over fifty-five years of illustrious artistic career.

Ravi Paranjape was born in 1935 in a culturally rich town of Belgaum in an artistically oriented family. After completing education and apprenticeships he began a career as an illustrator, advancing through employments at well-known publication houses and studios in Mumbai. Within no time Ravi Paranjape's ever evolving artistic style made an impression in the world of communication arts in India and abroad. Having earned the name and confidence he soon established his own art studio in Mumbai. Artist Paranjape's self-developed technique of architectural perspective rendering turned out to be the turning point in his career.

In spite of having an enormously rewarding career as a commercial artist his heart was set on his innate passion for painting without boundaries. Ravi Paranjape's remarkably well-received debut show instantly established him as a painter. His progressively successful shows strengthened his desire to devote to painting. With an encouragement and an unconditional support of his wife Smita he answered to the calling and migrated to Pune in 1990 to paint full time at his beautiful home studio. Moving to Pune also presented him an opportunity to relish his penchant for Hindustani classical music.

Ravi Paranjape was approached by a leading Marathi news publication in Pune to write a short series on Western renaissance painters who impacted the history of art. The series became so popular that it was later published as a book called 'ShikhareRangaReshanchi'.
Writing became a new-found medium of expression for Ravi Paranjape. He authored several books and articles on art as well as political & social topics. His revolutionary thought of integrating the 'Design Based Culture' in the social structure has been applauded by the authorities and thinkers alike.

Ravi Paranjape has received numerous prestigious awards for his artistic and literary accomplishments including 'Communication Arts Guild (CAG) Hall of Fame' honoring his lifetime contribution to the commercial art, Dayawati Modi Foundation's and 'BhairuratanDamani Award' for his autobiography 'Brush Mileage'.
