Panchal Mansaram was born in 1934 in Mount Abu in Rajasthan, western India. He attended the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai, India between 1954 and 1959 and studied between 1963 and 1964, at the State Academy of Fine Arts, Amsterdam. During this period he learned printmaking and travelled to Atelier 17 in Paris where he spent time with Krishna Reddy, who taught him simultaneous colour printing. In 1966, Mansaram migrated to Canada, where he met and collaborated with Marshall McLuhan. In the 1970s, Mansaram created a mixed media series of paintings, titled ‘Rear View Mirror’. During this time he began to work with fabric as a collage medium and this became mixed media using xerography transfer, serigraphy, blue prints, etc. In the 1980s he produced large format laser graphic works. Panchal Mansaram lives in Ontario, Canada and continues to work and exhibit.
