Brief Description Abdulrahim Appabhai Almelkar was born in Ahemdabad, Gujarat. He studied art at Sir J.J School of Arts, Mumbai. His sketches are record of his stay and visit to places, as animate, narrative and methodological instances occurred with him. In Almelkar's words, "My mother was busy embroidering all through her pregnancy and I probably inherited art from her at that stage". Almelkar sketched tirelessly as he visited places within India and abroad. Keeping in mind the fundamentals of drawing, he did both naturalistic as well as figure studies. He imbued animal, flower, plantations in his sketches.
