Mohan was born in Bangalore, India in 1945. He learned how to work with his hands, painting and making toys, at an early age. After graduating high school, Mohan moved to London, where he spent 5 years living a carefree life, earning money doing odd jobs. In 1968 Mohan moved to Vienna, Austria to work with his cousin in the textile industry. He loved working with colors, and soon began designing garments. He travelled all over Europe, and to countries in Asia and South America, collecting inspirations. He eventually settled in San Diego in 1985. Mohan began painting in 1999 with acrylics on any material that he could afford. He also became quite adept at grinding aluminum, having been an assistant for 5 years to an accomplished artist in Marin County. The sphere is Mohan's trademark, and can be seen in most of his work. Mohan's present style evolved after experimenting with many media. He begins by making two acrylic paintings on canvas. He then turns the paintings over and draws random lines on them, as well as a sphere within. Shockingly, next, he cuts each painting into strips of various widths and curves, then weaves them together into a tight pattern. When he finishes weaving, he turns the piece over to see his “surprise”. In 2011, Mohan did his first solo show at the La Jolla Historical Society. His work can be seen in galleries in La Jolla, San Diego and Los Angeles.
