Born in 1942 in Baroda, Altaf Mohammedi went to Central Saint Martins to study art. His college years in England shaped his political thoughts and he joined a community with similar leftist thoughts. He was involved in social causes and painted the dalit community. Although he was born in an affluent family, he tried to distance himself from the privileges that he had. His works are inspired by his self discovery, suffering, death and the human condition. He uses dark colour in his pallette with contrasting shades.
