Ankit Patel

Born 1957 in Surat, Ankit Patel studied sculpture in his home state of Gujarat at MS University in Baroda and subsequently took up a job as a teacher at the Rajasthan School of Art in Jaipur. His sculptures primarily in figuration are spontaneous and playful, endowed with a movement and a force. His kinetic creations come in wood, bronze and stone and his choice of material and size for the visual imagery ranging from small to life size depends on the form and the idea behind the work. Free of any trappings, his stick-like figures are marked for their charm and personality.
