My name is Kartikey Sharma, "I am 27 years old, I have always been an artist but couldn't take any formal art education due to my upbringing in a conservative middle class family. I pursued mechanical engineering and during college I decided to make art my career. I knocked doors of an esteemed art university in Mumbai and when they couldn't accommodate me in any official manner I started sitting in their classes quietly, without disturbing anyone or painting, but rather just observing. 

From there my journey as a professional artist began. In the past 7 years I have had many solo exhibitions independently organised and have had a fulfilling career as a mural artist. I have over a 100 canvas paintings to my name and over 150 commissioned mural/graffiti projects. I also started a small art firm in 2016 with 2 partners to organist our art business. I recently quit as the director of the company to better explore myself as an artist. I have started 2 major projects of painting the complete city (100 walls) of Bangalore and Pune with murals which is half way into completion. I am thankful to have been featured by every leading newspaper in India for my work. More on Kartikey Sharma
