Nabibaksh Mansoori was born in 1966 in Idar, Gujarat. He completed his Diploma in Fine Art, Drawing and Paintings at the Sheth C.N. College of Fine Arts, Ahmedabad in 1990, obtaining a Post Diploma in Fine Arts from the M.S University of Baroda two years later.

Colour has always left him in awe. He was first introduced to it as a child after his father handed him a prism with convex and concave lens. That experience transformed the way he saw the world around him and is strongly reflected in his work to this day – a multitude of colours, daring brusque colours, layered imagery, sometimes dream-like, vivid use of light, all combine to drum up an energy in his paintings that leaps out at you.

He has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions including the Marvel Art Gallery in Ahmedabad, Studio 51J in Mumbai, the Creations Art Gallery in Dubai, and Bonham’s in London.
