is a self taught artist of Indian origin who has lived in the United States since 1975. His family is global… in Australia, India, Sweden and the US. With all these cultural influences, his art represents diversity and a personal cultural odyssey between the east and the west. Banwar is a practicing reconstructive orthopedic surgeon in Upstate, NY. His personal life has been
attempting to achieve a balance between the objectivity of his profession and the subjectivity of his art. He is still active as an orthopedic reconstructive surgeon and has recently combined some of his fine art with some biologically inspired industrial designed implants that he uses. He feels it is a perfect amalgam of today’s world as a combination of the digital age and traditional inspirations for art.
Biologically inspired industrial design, beyond being “body mechanic”, seems in his mind to pro- mote his profession as actually being an art form. It inspires him as a surgeon and an artist. His studio is at his home in Canandaigua, NY.
