Suresh Kumar Dhurve is a celebrated Gond painter, even exhibiting as a solo artist in Bharat Bhawan in 2007, following in the footsteps of Jangarh Singh Shyam. It is an achievement Suresh Dhurve takes plenty of pride in. Having been encouraged to follow through on his talent by Jangarh Singh Shyam, he has a special affinity for identifying birds, which perhaps is what leads to him often painting them, as well. This has becomes something of a trademark of his, another favoured motif being fish. His works used to be vibrant and alive with colour, having progressed to becoming mostly monochrome.
