Hemant Kumar

Hemant Kumar was born and raised in the Rajasthani village of Khairthal in the Alwar district. He graduated from University of Rajasthan with a B.F.A. and an M.F.A.

His father's drive to innovate has unwittingly aided him to grow as an art director from a very young age. The wisest decision of his life, in his opinion, was to forgo pursuing a B.Sc. in biology in favour of pursuing his passion for art.

His profession as a production designer and art director has always challenged him to push his limits and he has always proved himself. His involvement in web series, films and TV serials like Commando 2, Maidaan, Illegal, Suryaputra Karna, Chakravarti Ashoka, Fastey Fasaatey, Rifalgunj, Porus, Chhori and Atithi Bhooto Bhavah is the prime example of his passion and immense knowledge of his craft.
