Youngest of five siblings, I was born in a small village called Garidepally, in the Nalgonda district of Andhra Pradesh, India, to Laxmamma and Satyam. Born just a little after the demise of my paternal grandfather, I was christened after him. Named Anjaneyulu, I finished my schooling in my native village to join my brother in his commercial signboard painting enterprise as a helping hand, in a small neighboring town. Soon, informed of a College of fine arts in Hyderabad, and finding myself qualified to seek entry into their undergraduate course, I sought admission with the JNTU college of Fine Arts. The extensive use of the library being the only credit due, to the institution and the course pursued, I passed out in the year 2000. I have, since, continued to live in Hyderabad, pursuing drawing and painting, full time.
