About Chanchal Banga

CHANCHAL BANGA was born and raised in the industrial city of Jamshedpur, (State of Jharkhand), India. At a young age he recognized that life imposes categories and boundaries upon people. In his early paintings, he experimented with ideas and techniques in search of new ways for free and creative expression.

Chanchal studied at Maharaja Sayajirao University (M.S.U.), Baroda and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking. University studies helped Chanchal develop the aesthetic and conceptual aspects of his work. He owes this to the multi-cultural student body and his professors who encouraged self-expression, allowing an open and vibrant learning environment to flourish. He interacted critically with the work of modern Indian artists like Nilima and Gulam Shaikh, Jyoti Bhatt, and many European artists. Chanchal drew influences from these artists and honed his technical skills based upon their techniques.

In June of 2000 Chanchal travelled to Israel where he volunteered for nine months in a kibbutz while pursuing his artwork. He became involved with local art groups and participated in a number of cultural activities and projects. He worked on the famous Peace Project (sponsored by Kibbutz Baraam) with a number of artists to execute large paintings inspired by the history of the Israeli-Arab conflict and the ongoing search for peace.

In 2001, Chanchal received a scholarship from the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Israel to study a post-graduate printmaking program at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.

Chanchal works in his studio at Tel Aviv, Israel. He also has a home and a studio in Jerusalem where he lives with his wife Sigal and daughters Aditi and Rani.
