Vipul Prajapati born and brought up in Ahmedabad comes from a very humble family of farmers. His father Nagjibhai Prajapati is also an eminent artist, so art is in his genes. He certainly dreamt of being an artist and thus his journey began at a very tender age. He then studied painting from Sheth C N College of Fine Arts. He always had this nudge of thinking and doing things out of the box exploring and experimenting with materials. His work was always appreciated, he got his first State Lalit Kala award as a student in year 2005 and ever since that he hasn’t looked back. A very hardworking and dedicated for his creative instincts his vision was to make his own path which he did. His fascination for ships, ship workers and ship yards brought him closer to dig out the realities of a hardcore life that was thriving amidst all odds yet the zest for life was inevitably at the core.
