Panchal Mansaram was born in #India
and studied at the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai, India between 1954 and 1959 and at the State Academy of Fine Arts, Amsterdam, Netherlands between 1963 and 1964, on a Dutch Government Fellowship. He immigrated to #Canada
in the 1960s where he met #MarshallMcLuhan
and began a long term #artistic
and intellectually collaborative friendship. In 1973, McLuhan wrote that "Mansaram's work presents a natural dialogue between the East and the West." Mansaram is particularly known for a type of canvas #print #collage
which he invented as well as for his work’s distinctive representation of the hybridity of the globe through a #Canadian
lens. His work is in the permanent #collections
of the National Gallery of Canada, Art Gallery of Mississauga, Art Gallery of Ontario, Modern Art Museum in New Delhi and other public and private collections.
The Art Gallery of Mississauga’s Permanent Art Collection boasts two large-scale mixed media works by Mansaram, and the AGM presented a #retrospective
