About Sandesh Khule:

Sandesh Khule was born in Karmala, Maharashtra on 9th September 1983. He received Diploma in Drawing and Painting from Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya, Pune in 2004. He achieved several awards in various art competitions such as, Maharashtra State Art Award, The Bombay Art Society, Camlin Art Foundation and several other accolades. His work also exhibited in Lalit Kala Akademi, National Art Exhibition, 2008 and 2014.

After completing of his Diploma in Drawing and Painting he got selected for the Euro Tour to visit Art Galleries, Studios and Museums in Europe, offered by Camlin Art Foundation.

After returning from Europe he found himself to be rather more serious about his art practice than ever before.

In 2005, Sandesh went to Ellora to live and study there and he bears a great impact of it in his work. He experiments in his work through the colour, texture and peace which drifts through the carved stones as an energy.

In 2006-07, Sandesh was selected for research grant by National Lalit Kala Akademi Delhi at Lalit Kala Akademi, Chennai. With guidance of eminent artist R M Palaniappan, Sandesh practiced there for two years and that helped him to enhance his thoughts towards his own conception about his practice.

In 2008, he put up his debut solo show at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai, titled "Between C and P". After this show in 2008, Sandesh got a Scholarship of young artist offered by Ministry of Culture, Government of India.

During this entire journey he kept himself curious to get engaged in the Indian culture and tradition. Hence he travelled a lot in India to gain various experiences. The outcome of the thirst, he went to Banaras in 2010 and lived there. He had conversations with local people and saw the rituals taking place around very closely. Thereafter he came to Mumbai, worked for an interim period and returned to his hometown Karmala.
