Paramjit Singh did his art education in the School of Arts, Delhi Polytechnic (1953-58). He was the founder member of 'The Unknown', a group of young painters and sculptors based in Delhi. Paramjit Singh is a landscape painter with a difference. His early landscapes are evocatively silent studies of nature. His paintings can be seen as a painter’s reaction to the mysteries of nature. His preoccupation with Pittura Metafisica, a short-lived school in modern Italian Art is quite evident in early paintings. The sharp shadows and melting tones gave his paintings a transcendental aura.
