A medley of oil paintings

Author: 
Yadav Ram

Yadav Ram was born in 1955 in Patiala, Punjab and had his education in Chandigarh. He did his LLB from Meerut University.

Starting work as a teacher, he moved on to being an automobile mechanic, serving with the Armed Forces HeadQuarters and working at an insurance company. He settled down to steady employment after he joined the Department of Central Excise and Service Tax. Upon retirement, he has started a law firm as a consultant.

Editor's note: Last year, Shree Yadav Ram shared his life's story with us. Today we are privileged to showcase a selection from his vast treasure trove of oil paintings on canvas. In the next story we will put on display his love for plants and parks.


Although I had selected drawing as one of my optional subjects in school, I did not paint much during my school days.

It was only after I hired a teacher for my children that my interest in drawing and painting was rekindled. That’s how at 45, I restarted my hobby.

My first three paintings were under the guidance of the art and drawing teacher hired for my children.

Since then I have done a copious amount of painting. My favourite medium is to paint with oil paint on canvas, with a brush or knife.
