    Milind Mulick was born into an artistic family. He is the son of the famous illustrator and painter Pratap Mulick and has been drawing since the age of 5.

    He painted his first watercolour landscapes at the age of 13. He received the Government’s National Talent Scholarship to pursue Art studies, but he chose not to go to art college.

    Instead, he took up engineering. However, after passing out, his artistic inclinations prevailed and he started to do architectural perspectives and other commercial and design work.

    Most importantly he also returned to his earlier interest in landscape painting.

    More recently, he has managed to reverse the proportions and nowadays he paints most of the time and spends much less time teaching. He now does very little other commercial work.

    He gives occasional watercolour demonstrations in Government art colleges in Maharashtra and is a visiting faculty for the art courses run by the India Art Gallery.

    Occasionally he runs his own workshops and teaches a few students privately.

    He has participated in many group shows throughout India, and has had fifteen one- man shows in Mumbai and Pune. His paintings are in the collections of many private individuals and a few Corporate houses in India, USA, Europe as well as Japan and Singapore.

    He has now been painting regularly for more than two decades creating a place for himself in contemporary Indian art , and a special niche of his own in landscape painting.

    He has travelled widely throughout India and also further developed his painting career by travelling to Europe for that purpose. His travels are reflected in the variety of his subject matter, but he also has a special interest in his home town Pune.

    He is most concerned to preserve and record Pune’s architectural heritage, including the legacy from the Maratha and British Colonial periods. He is concerned about the encroachment of industry and modern architecture on the city’s heritage and is involved in the publication of a book by the local cultural heritage society.

    The depth of this interest and commitment is reflected in much of his work, such as his paintings of old Pune wadis.
