Suhas Bhujpal

University Hall, First Floor

Born in India, Suhas Bhujbal is a contemporary cityscape and figurative painter. Bhujbal’s skill and inspiration started at a young age: he grew up in a remote village and spent most of his time watching local artisans involved with their craft. When he moved to an urban city at age 9, he was introduced to architecture and city life. India’s dense architecture and colors are the essence of his work today. “For me, architecture provides a tangible scaffolding around which to construct a specific mood or narrative.” Bhujbal evolves ordinary moments into ones of meaning and beauty, and renders cityscapes, scenes of everyday life, and figures in rich, abstract, and overlapping colors.
“I appreciate the simplicity in life,” he comments. “I paint what I see, experience, and feel. It is really about falling in love in that moment and bringing that on the canvas in a visual form.”
Bhujbal earned an MFA in Painting from the Academy of Art in San Francisco in 2005 (where he taught for many years), and a BFA in Illustration and Advertising from the Directorate of Art in Bombay, India in 1997. His work has been exhibited in galleries across the US. In 2017 he had a solo exhibition at The Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, CA. He has won numerous awards and his work is in many collections including the Dell Foundation, Austin, Texas.
