Anand PKC was born on October 20th, 1974 in South India.He is fully dedicated to realism and wishes to paint his subjects as true to reality as possible. After spending his youth in India, he now lives in New York City, USA.

At the tender age of 3, he was showing promise as an artist, in both drawing and painting with water colors. His natural talent was observed carefully by his mother, who was also an artist in her early school days, and was supportive of his talent. Her encouragement gave her son great inspiration and he was involved in art events at his schools, winning several prizes and regional awards as a junior. Since then, after graduation in BBA, he drifted from his artistic pursuits to work with his father in other ventures. Being a gifted artist in childhood, it seemed fated that he would return to his artistic roots and inevitably become an artist. Anand now has his own art business, Maharani Arts, Inc., which opened in New York in 2010.

His first public art exhibition in the United States was Art Expo 2011 in New York City. He has also exhibited in The Art of Fashion at The Chelsea Hotel, The Art of Fashion Gala at Jean D' Arc Residence and Peter Louis Gallery in New York City. His awards include The Art of Fashion First Place Juried Artist Award and ARC Approved Living Artist Award.
