Desmond Lazaro

Desmond Lazaro was born in Leeds, England, his parents having emigrated from India to the UK. After an undergraduate degree in painting from the University of Central Lancashire, England, and a scholarship at the Maharaja Sayajirao University in Baroda, he earned a Master's degree in painting at the Royal College of Art. During this period Lazaro became fascinated by miniature painting and immersed himself in the art of pichvai cloth painting, a tradition of the Rajasthan region. Lazaro has established a foundation to promote the revival and continuance of traditional arts in North India that repositions traditional art within a contemporary context.
