Shail Choyal has taught art at the University of Udaipur for about 30 years. Painter, printmaker, teacher and a muralist Shail Choyal is popularly known for his nostalgic art in India. He infuses his works in the narrative idiom and also juxtaposes the allegorical with the real. Exploiting the inherent aesthetic motifs and the multi tier division of space of Rajasthani traditional painting, he has evolved a nostalgic art with an utmost modern sensibility. Vibrant colors and surreal settings add mystery to his paintings.
