K. Jagjit Singh is a landscape artist who was attracted to colours and canvas in his early age. The young man joined the NDA in 1960. However, that couldn’t stop his zeal to learn the finer nuances of art. He was trained at the NDA by art professionals.
Later, he joined the Kumaon regiment and was posted in the Himalayan regions of Kashmir, Ladakh and Sikkim. The tough terrain and the demanding job did not stop him from painting the towering and the beautiful mountains on his canvas.
His paintings have been exhibited in India and other countries. The art pieces are also part of the art collections in India, UK, USA, France, amongst other countries.
