Explored major cities of Germany for art study under INDO-FRG Cultural Exchange Programme by DAAD.

 

Participated in many prestigious Art auctions by Christies and others.

 

Visited Paris, Germany, Dubai, Mauritius, Australia, Bangkok, Kenya, Israel, Egypt, Russia and Morocco.

 

Mondal has received many prestigious Awards including AIFACS, New Delhi, West Bengal State Academy Award (twice), Academy of Fine Arts Award (twice) and A.P. Council of Artists Hyderabad.
