Jeram Patel was born in post-colonial India at Gujarat in 1930 and regarded as one of the significant Indian artists. He was well known for his abstract art. This kind of art is closely related to the non-figurative art, non-objective art and non-representational art. Patel completed his education in the field of fine arts at the J.J. School of Arts, Mumbai. He also taught at the MS University at Baroda. He travelled to England and France in 1957-1959 and later to Japan in 1961. These travels refined his artistic sensibilities. He was also a founder member of the short-lived artists' collective Group 1890.
Patel’s one-man shows were presented at London, New Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai and represented India at the Tokyo Biennale of 1963, the Sao Paulo Biennale of 1963, the Third World Biennale at Baghdad in 1980 and the Festival of India, London, in 1982. His works were also featured in many prominent collections at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, the Society of India, the Museum of Fine Arts in Bhopal and the Dhoomimal Gallery in New Delhi. He raised the pride of India through his important work that was exhibited at a distinguished international arena. He died in 2016 and left his mark in contemporary art through his significant work.
