Born in 1976 in Lucknow, India.


Pande majored in graphic design at the National Institute of Design (NID) in Ahmedabad in 2005. Since then, his art has developed into diagrams that are composites of digital lines overlaid with traditional materials such as acrylic paint, ink and tinsel. The result is a frenzied collage mapping curious imagery – many portraits, some disfigured figures, skeletal members, and floating objects. Pande uses dissimilar elements and arranges them on the space of his paper to create surprisingly analytical drawings masked with jest – the arithmetical gestured form of the subject with its frivolous color palette, an arrangement that is intuitive to Pande.


Pande held his first solo, A to Zoo, at Chatterjee and Lal in Mumbai in 2008. Since then, he has held numerous solos in India and several group shows in other countries, including A Further Global Encounter at Grosvenor Vadehra Gallery in London, 2012 and War Zone at the Kunstmuseum Artemons in Austria.


The artist lives and works in New Delhi, India.
