He was awarded by Government of Rajasthan for 1985-86 National Merit Certificate and State Award in 1986-87.

    I booked an experience with Rajasthan studio when I heard that they curate experiences with artists. And I booked the session with Mohan Lal Sharma, which was a great experience. I would definitely book another session sooner.

    My friends and I are huge art enthusiasts. When we got to know about learning Taarkashi as an art form. We all were very excited. And our session was already great when we met Mohan Lal Sharma. He is an amazing artist. His works are more than amazing. And we enjoyed this session with Mohan Lal. Thank you, Rajasthan Studio, for making this possible.
