Vithal was born in Maharashtra in 1935. He completed his bachelors from Sir J.J School of Art, Mumbai where trained to be a painter and sculptor. His compositions like many of his contemporaries at the time centre on the volatility of the human as well animal forms. He was married to fellow artist B Prabha in 1956, whose works resemble those of her husband’s human forms. He works canvasses as well as sculptures of the animal forms. His themes have a wide range from humans and animals incorporated with elements from his locale in Maharashtra.
