P. R. Narvekar After receiving his diploma in Fine arts (drawing & painting) from J.J.School of art, Mumbai and receiving a gold medal in 1974, Narvekar turned to textile design. After a short stint, he began experimenting with painting through various mediums. He uses the human form as the basis of his expression and experimentation. His rhythmic lines, whether thick, zigzag or broken designs create a sense of volume in the figures. Narvekar has shown his works in Balgandharva Art Gallery 1976 and Gallery Leela 1998-99, 2001- '02, '03, '04, and '05. His works were also exhibited at Cymroza Art gallery in 2004 and Jehangir Art gallery in 2001-2005. He has been awarded by the Bombay Art Society in 2001.
