My father, Pratap Mulick, is a well-known illustrator and painter. My own artistic ability became apparent rather early. I have been drawing since the age of 5 and I started doing watercolour landscapes at the age of 13.
I received our government's National Talent Scholarship to study art, but I decided to major in engineering rather than art.
After graduation, however, I returned to my artistic inclinations and began doing architectural illustrations and other commercial and design work. I continued painting landscapes and giving art lessons as well.
Recently, however, having reversed these priorities, I am painting most of the time and spending less time teaching and very little in commercial work. I sometimes give watercolor demonstrations in government art colleges in Maharashtra. I run my own watercolor courses at Art2day gallery. I also hold workshops occasionally, and teach a few students privately.
I have participated in many group shows throughout India, and have had 20 one- man shows in Mumbai and Pune. My paintings are in the collection of many private individuals and a few Corporate houses in India, USA, Europe as well as Japan and Singapore.
I have thus been painting for last 22 years or more on a regular basis and have, hopefully, created a place for myself in contemporary Indian art.
My home and family
I live in Pune, India with wife Keerti & two sons, Satej and Harshawardhan.

He is now ten,an abstract expressionist. He has taught me to paint freely, pour as much paint without bothering about wastage or the cost.
