Pankaj Brijlani was born and raised in Delhi, India. He moved to Canada in 2008 and currently lives and works in Toronto. He is a graduate of the Visual Effects program from Seneca College. He divides his time working as a Visual Effects artist for feature films and a fine art photographer.
Pankaj Brijlani uses his photography to examine the intrinsic link between his internal and external journey's. Pankaj has lived across two continents, this has greatly informed his interest in migration. His focus is primarily about migration and a sense of place - he questions ‘Where is home?’. He uses different parameters of time and place to create abstract images that employ the use of particular colors and form to show these experiences.
