Deepak Garud hails from Nasik. He has passed his Govt. Diploma in Art (G D Art) and Art Teachers Diploma (ATD) from Nasik Kala Niketan.
Deepak is a simple man with his heart firmly entrenched in village life. Born and brought up in the pilgrim city of Nasik, the artist is deeply impacted by Indian festivals, traditions, folk art and artistes, and rural lifestyle.
Naturally, the joie de vivre and the candid simplicity that generally characterizes rural lifestyle fill his canvases. The artist infuses his paintings with a rhythmic touch with a marked focus on facial expression, active body movements and lots of colour. Such elements add a touch of timeless appeal to his paintings.
In addition to being a painter, Deepak is also a set designer and Make-up artist. He has been actively involved with the Experimental Marathi Theatre scenario in Nasik and has earned several accolades for his work.
