Born in a small village near Ahmedabad and product of Fine Art College, (Ahmedabad) Amrut Patel started his career way back in the late sixties. Ever since he has held several solo shows and participated in many group shows here and abroad. Apart from the several state awards that he has received so far, he was also honoured with the National Award by Lalit Kala Akademi in 1976, He has remained associated with many major art events at the national and international levels. In 2004, he curated the prestigious exhibition of National and Triennale Awardees-'Swarnarekha'- organized by Lalit Kala Akademi on the occasion of Golden Jubilee Celebrations.

Amrut Patel has been on the national art scene for nearly four decades. His experimentation with visual imageries has earned him a distinctive place in the contemporary art world. Looking at his creative oeuvre one may marvel at the artist's deep sense of yearning to fathom out newer formal entities and configurations that appear on his canvases. Aesthetic serenity of colours, tonal variations, and the delicately balanced forms often juxtaposed on one another, are the hallmarks of a large number of works done by the artist. His most recent non-narrative works, mostly done in acrylic on canvas or paper, resonate with a brooding silence that invites the viewer into the realm of the 'virtual space'.
