Sumatimohan was born in the village of Ghodiyal, near Palanpur, in Gujarat, India. His deeply spiritual work stems from his Jainism beliefs. As he says,"All living beings are equal; they share the spirit."
Since 1973, Sumatimohan has been in numerous shows in New York galleries, including Vorpal Gallery, National Arts Club, Tradition Three Thousand and Lorence Monk Gallery. He was featured in a retrospective by Nature-Morte Gallery at the Academy of Fine Arts and Literature in New Delhi.
Sumatimohan's most recent works "Self Images" are ink on paper dealing with transitional self-portraits. A few sample images of these self portraits are seen below. All self images are watercolor on paper and are 10" x 10"
