Jeram Patel was born in the small town of Sojitra, Gujarat. He studied at the J.J. School of Art and then at the Central School, London where he took a diploma in Typography and Publicity Design. Jeram Patel along with Himmat Shah were founder members of Group 1890 along with J. Swaminathan, Gulammohammed Sheikh, Ambadas, Jyoti Bhatt, Rajesh Mehra, Eric Bowen, Raghav Kaneria, Redeppa Naidu, S.G. Nikam. The group members created abstract works of art that emphasised colour and mysticism that paid homage to the Indian folk art tradition. The group's manifesto was written by Mexican poet and then ambassador Octavio Paz in 1963. Swaminathan stated 'We reject the vulgar nationalism of Raja Ravi Varma and the pastoral idealism of the Bengal School, down through the hybrid mannerisms resulting from the imposition of concepts evolved by successive movements in modern European art on classical miniature and folk style...' (J. Swaminathan quoted in Dalmia 2001, p.226) 'In contradiction to the Western approach, the traditional Indian approach to painting-space has always been geometric. This is because painting was never meant to 'represent' reality in the naturalistic 'objective' sense, it was the cogent and poetic rendering of ideal truth in terms of two-dimensional space.' (J. Swaminathan, The Cube And The Rectangle, New Delhi, 1967, p. 24)
