Updated: May 2, 2021


Rohan Dahotre is an illustrator based out in Pune, India. He is a nature and wildlife enthusiast, a keen observer who loves exploring the wilderness. He loves illustrating and contributing towards the cause of wildlife.

“Nature has always inspired me. I feel not just me but everyone loves nature. But when it specifically comes to wildlife, that is what I like the most. So much variety, different characteristics, behaviour, shapes, sizes, texture. In all there so much to observe and learn.”

“Visual art is a very strong medium where we can communicate our thoughts or rather express our selves. I see it as a medium in introducing the wildlife through beautiful illustrations. His helps in spreading awareness among our society. Art can also tell a story. May be habitat loss, poaching, pollution. Which can ultimately promote Animal Conservation. Art can also act as a news Channel and tell us about important events that are happening around our planet. This can make people aware of what is happening currently in our society involving wildlife and ecology, which media usually ignores.”

Education and work

I studied in my home city Pune, and graduated as an animator. After working in few animation companies for a couple of years, I decided to take a break from work and focus more on illustrations. I developed more interest towards drawing wildlife and so I decided to be a freelance Wildlife artist. Currently I have worked with various forest and wildlife NGOs in India and also for clients such as BBC and WWF India.
