Sailoz Mookherjee was born in 1907 in Kolkata. He received a diploma in Fine Arts from CGAC and proceeded to study art at the Ecole de Paris. He taught at the Sarada Ukil School, New Delhi (1945-7) and at Delhi Polytechnic (1948-60).

Speaking about his work, the artist noted, "I owe my basic inspiration to Matisse's odalisques. I accept whatever new forms of self-expression suit my oriental temperament and tradition. No doubt any simplification of form and vibrancy of color derive from the Ecole de Paris...but my main influences are the folk art of India and the Basohli miniatures."

Mookherjea has had several exhibitions in India and abroad. He passed away in 1960 in New Delhi.
