Born and raised in Bangalore, Shivu holds a BVA in sculpture from the College of Fine Arts, Bengaluru and MFA in Ceramics and Glass from Kala Bhavana, Santiniketan. He recalls playing with mud in his grandmother’s garden, making miniature crockery and figures as one of his fondest memories which planted a seed for his affinity towards clay .In the city, sculpting Ganesha idols during Ganesha Chaturthi by borrowing a lump of red clay from a local artisan was a highly anticipated event cherished every year.Throwing donuts on the wheel and forming rather challenging and complex structures that is gravitationally well balanced for both sculptural and functional purpose has always kept him on his feet.

Ever since the pandemic he started experimenting with 3D modelling and printing. He plans to continue stepping into new media like such that will eventually aid his adventurous journey with art. He believes understanding the properties of a media and it’s behavior is key and encourages people to do so.
