Rameshwar Broota, born in New Delhi in 1941, graduated from the College of Art, New Delhi in 1964. As the head of the Department of Art, Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi, Broota has been teaching and inspiring many artists of the younger generation.
Since the beginning of his career Broota has been deeply involved in exposing the contemporary human situation; a degradation of humanity and the individual, one that pollutes the relationship on the social plane. His early oil paintings showing ‘humanised’ gorillas, were corrosively satirical and showed the artist's concern for the socio-moral being of man. Over the decades, though not a prolific painter, Broota evolved a technique of painting mostly in monochrome: On the canvas surface, usually painted in matte black, he works with a sharp, thin blade to bring in light and forms, exposing the white surface below, creating deep spatial dimensions.
