Sanjay Patel: Deities, Demons, and Dudes with Staches

sanjay Patel

Our good friend Sanjay Patel has been a busy man lately. He recently completed an amazing series of murals and posters for the Maharaja exhibition at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum. In addition, he was asked by the museum to display his personal work in a separate but somewhat related show entitled Deities, Demons and Dudes with ‘Staches. The exhibit features art and sketches from Sanjay’s ghee happy projects, including his recently released Big Poster Book of Hindu Deities.

Deities, Demons and Dudes with ‘Staches will be on view at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum from November 11, 2011 through April 22, 2012.  For more information, visit

Good to see the traditional art which inspired me on a point of art skills. Amazing concept and very good base of design.

Looks amazing Sanjay! Well done my man.

truly amazing & inspiring …I like this Maharaja poster is great..I think I will need to order the book “Big Poster Book of Hindu Deities.”

I went to the exhibit yesterday, and it was fantastic! His work covers the entrance to the gallery as well. Incredible work. I was very disappointed that the pieces created for the Maharaja exhibit are not licensed to the museum, and therefore not available for purchase. Hopefully this will be remedied soon!

Hi…..Nice blog You Have regarding this type of things and information but i want to more information about educational posters educational charts classroom posters classroom charts thank you ..

Stellar Sanjay!

These are COOOOOOL

How come denigrating Hindu deities become an art? Sanjay has been spreading misinformation about Hindu deities without understanding the real meaning and the spiritual science behind it. He is a mere vehicle to propagate hate and misrepresentation of Hindu deities. Not original at all.

Who cares, Jay? They look great! And he worked hard to make them look great. That’s all we care about.

Great work Sanjay!
