Shail Choyal was born in November 9, 1945. Born in Kota, Choyal studied painting at Udaipur University, and followed this with a Diploma from Jaipur School of Art. He went on a 10-month study tour to London for studying graphics on the sponsorship by British Council. He also traveled to U.S.S.R.-Latvija for a seminar on watercolors sponsored by I.C.C.R & Cesis Art Council.


A painter, printmaker and a teacher, Shail Choyal is known for a distinctive miniature style of his own through which he has carved a niche for himself in the contemporary art scene in the country. He infuses his works in the narrative idiom and also juxtaposes the allegorical with the real. Exploiting the inherent aesthetic motifs and the multi tier division of space of Rajasthani traditional painting, he has evolved a nostalgic art with an utmost modern sensibility. Vibrant colors and surreal settings add mystery to his paintings.


Among the honors and awards received by him are Gold Medal in Master's Degree Drawing and Painting (1969), Rajasthan Lalit Kala award for printmaking (1969), and Bombay Art Society award for painting (1971).
