In any new profession, having your own role model is definitely important. It not only enables you to set your own benchmarks, but also enables you to understand the standard of the work that you need to do in order to be recognized by that person. In other words, if you are thinking about getting into paintings, you would need a proper role model to understand the kind of exposure and quality of work that needs to be done before you can be considered in the same level. For Indian painters, that standard would be Amit Ambalal.
Amit Ambalal has not only been able to revolutionize the overall Indian painting industry, but has been able to do so without creating much of a controversy. He has been painting for quite a while, and it is only lately that he has been able to gain the kind of recognition and traction for his body of work. Of course, it is very late in his career when it comes to paintings to get the kind of exposure, but it is still going to work out to the benefit of Indian painters. The painting community in India will be able to ride the wave of popularity to get to a good point.
