Born and brought up in a small, ubiquitous town of North India, for Dhananjay Singh there was hardly any apparent link with informed art practice. However, he nurtured his interest in art, and more so in sculpting. He did his B.F.A. (Sculpture) from the Faculty of Visual Arts, Banaras Hindu University and M.F.A. in Sculpture from the MS University, Vadodara (2002). He has served as visiting faculty at the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Gandhinagar. He has won many awards, such as Harmony Excellence Award for emerging artist of the year (2005); INLAKS Fine Art Award (2005); Commonwealth Arts and Crafts Award (2005), and Gujarat State Academy Award, Ahmedabad (2004). He has participated in Gulf Art Fair (2007); Bharat Bhavan Internatiional Biennial of Print-Art, Bhopal (2006) and a Sculpture Show at Kanoria Centre for Arts, Ahmedabad (2005). Dhananjay Singh had his first solo show at the Faculty of Art & Design, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia where he was Sculptor in Residence, working in the Faculty of Art and Design sculpture studio.
