Rameshwar Broota was born in New Delhi in 1941. He graduated from the College of Art, New Delhi in 1964. He has been involved in the contemporary human situation that disgraces individuals and spoils relationship between them on a social level. He taught art at the Jamia Millia Islamia University also at New Delhi. Broota is the head of the Department of Art, Triveni Kala Sangam in New Delhi
Many of his works made satirical remark at the rampant corruption. His early oil paintings show satirical 'humanized' gorillas. This shows the artist's concern for the socio-moral being of man. Over the decades Broota evolved a technique of painting in monochrome. On the matte black surface, he works with a sharp thin blade to bring in light and forms thereby exposing the white surface below, creating deep spatial dimensions. In some paintings man is shown against a forbidding wall on which there are illegible hieroglyphics that suggests man's enigmatic destiny. He has a highly personalized technique that has the quality of a graphic print.
His paintings have been exhibited in many solo and prestigious group shows. His experimental Video art films made in 1985 were shown at Shridharani Gallery in 1987.
