​Mr. Natu Patel is an immigrant artist whose art work is from landscape, abstract to portraits, which has been very well recognised in the Indo-Canadian community. He has also made paintings on different medians such as wood, canvas, fabrics, collage etc., along with use of water colours, oil and acrylics paints. He immigrated from Gujarat, India and was confident that despite his struggles, his talent will be recognized slowly yet steadily within the community.

He has recently made 26 portraits of Prime Ministers of Canada, on celebration of 150 years of Canada’s commemoration.  His message to all the immigrant artists is not to give up but to keep creating and developing new work everyday, so that more people can see it and recognize the talents.

Mr. Patel partakes in various community events to showcase his work and also has a Facebook fan page (Natvar27).
