Dev Mehta’s creativity was discovered at a very young age when turned 5 years, he had started painting on canvas with oil paint. His first painting was called “From Tempest to Calmness.” This was the beginning of exploring his imagination on different sizes of canvasses, different mediums – watercolors, acrylic, oil, charcoal and digital without any formal training.

He started shooting photos in 2015 both with his iPhone as well as a DSLR camera. His Paintings, Digital Art and Photographs project inspiration and a positive outlook and each picture has a story to tell.
