Mahaveer Swami

Miniature Artist

Mahaveer Swami, born in 1959 at Bikaner in Rajasthan, is a descendent from a family of traditional painters based in the historic city.

He trained first under his father and grandfather, and subsequently with the late Vedpal Sharma “Bannu” in Jaipur.

With his mastery in drawing, coloring and compositions, he is credited with reviving the original sophistication and refinement of the Bikaner School of painting.

Starting his career with making copies of old paintings, he now explores newer and contemporary subjects, such as his series of paintings based on the daily life of Indian women, a theme rarely explored by miniature painters.
