P. Yogeesh, born in 1982, did his Bachelors in Fine Arts from Chamarajendra Academy of Visual Art Mysore and his Masters from Delhi College of Art in 2010.

Hussain award at the 57th Annual Art exhibition at the Delhi College of Arts in 2010 and many more. A budding artist, he has participated in exhibitions held in various places including Delhi, Vadodara, Mumbai. While working with the Mime theme, Yogeesh found drama and population to have a strong impact on him in his initial years as an artist in Mysore. He also found inspiration in Lambani, a tribal art in Karnataka, which uses patterns and designs in a crowded manner, a theme found regularly in his paintings where he tries to depict the chaos of crowd and population.
