Ankush Safaya was born in 1985 in Hoshiarpur, Punjab. Trained as an engineer he completed his studies in 2007, and went on to work at Samsung as an engineer.

Having forfeited the chance of formal training at an art school earlier in life proved that the methods of learning had to be different. He initially worked as a technical studio assistant to Veer Munshi, an artist in Delhi. In 2014, Safaya met Rekha Rodwittiya and decided to move to Baroda to be part of The Collective Studio Baroda hosted by her and Surendran Nair.

He debuted with his first solo Anantata – Hymns of Graphical Notation at Sakshi Gallery in 2019 and another A Room Of One’s Own in 2023. He has been previously part of group exhibitions such as ‘Ufuq- Zarina a tribute’ at Kamalnayan Bajaj Gallery, Mumbai, curated by Dr Arshiya Lokhandwala, presented by Sunaina Kejriwal, ‘Four Conversations in the Room’ at Sakshi Salon, Mumbai, curated by Rekha Rodwittiya; ‘The Sacred And The Profane’ at Sakshi Gallery, Mumbai, ‘Five for the future’ at Nature Morte, Gurgaon. He was awarded the Glenfiddich Emerging Artist of the Year 2013 (runner-up). He presented at the Tie Conference 2019 at Santa Clara, California, on the invitation of the Motwani Jadeja Foundation, and also gave a masterclass to the fellows of the Rajeev Circle Program. He participated in the first Artist-in-residence program by the Motwani Jadeja Foundation in New York in August 2019.
