Born in Delhi in 1945, Jai Zharotia paints powerfully evocative and communicative images in his works. His works explore the world that lies beyond the realms of logic. In Zharotia's paintings, we find a series of icons that are drawn from the physical world but which, when interpreted by him, change almost magically into those that represent a world that exists only in the furthest reaches of his imagination. Zharotia's ability to leave the commonplace behind and find the unusual is seen in the technique he employs as well. His paintings also have almost surreal two-colour backgrounds, and even the play of light and shadow he uses in them is not confined by any physical laws, just like the subject of his works. Zharotia has won multiple awards including Priyadarshini Award, for outstanding Services, Achievements and Contribution in 2004, Senior Fellow in The field of Visual Arts, Ministry of HRD Govt. of India in 1998, A life-time contribution to Fine Arts award in 1995, National Award, Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi in 1992, Award for Silk Screen Printing, Sahitya Kala Parishad in 1979 amongst others. Zharotia lives and works in New Delhi.
