Veteran neo-impressionist landscape artist Laxman V. Shenvi (well known as L.V.Shenvi) was born in 1920 in Ankola, India. His passion for art led him to the J.J. School of Art, Mumbai where he graduated with a degree in fine art. He subsequently worked at Lintas, a well known advertising agency in Mumbai.
On weekends his love for painting would take him out to the countryside where he would paint landscapes in the traditional impressionist style. Later in his career he would take photographs by visiting sites and then later paint in his studio in Mumbai.
He received various honors from art fraternities in India and abroad. During his illustrious career he held several solo art exhibitions in various art galleries in India. His work has been acquired by many art enthusiasts in India and abroad.
Mr Shenvi passed away on February 1st, 2012.
