Shanti Dave was born on 25th September, 1931 in Badpura, a village in north Gujarat to a rural family. He went to Baroda to study Fine Arts in MS University in the year 1950. There he took his degrees in painting both graduate and postgraduate. He gave a start to his career as a banner and signboard painter. The artist also served as a member of the Sahitya Kala Parishad in New Delhi and also at the Executive Board of Lalit Kala Academy in New Delhi. His works are universal and unite the old with the new. He remained open to outer impacts and this assisted him to gain a firm ground to artworks. His painting style is non-objective and is disingenuously abstract. He uses unconventional materials such as encaustic and wax with oil paint. He makes use of signs of Sri and Om to give a widespread germaneness. He glows his canvas with these signs or other tantric icons. His sculptures and paintings have a blend of western expressionism, action painting techniques along with Arab and East Asian calligraphy. It was further mingled with complex and vivid rural art of India. In order to sentient the surface and fashion the texture he employs folk figures and blocks and the like. He makes the best use of the chance to soak the craft and rich folk traditions of Gujarat in his creations. Shanti Dave inculcated visual language of his own which earned him laurels from every part of the planet. His creations are unique in presentation, form and technique and are undoubtedly Indian. They combine stone carving, weaving and mixing multiple colors and wood-block painting. The name of Shanti Dave is also celebrated for huge murals. He painted these colossal murals on walls of various public spaces and art institutions. Achievements of Shanti Dave prove that he is amongst the most renowned art masters of India. His first main mural was a colossal one at VIP lounge of Air India's New York JFK airport in USA. This mural got place on the cover page of The New York Times on 5th February, 1964.
