Lance Ribeiro was born in Bombay in 1933 but originates from the Portuguese colony of Goa. He came to Britain in 1950 to study accountancy but soon abandoned it to study life drawing at St Martin's School of Art. Around this period, he travelled extensively between Paris and London, returning on conscription with the RAF. He returned to Bombay to work in life insurance in 1955 and at this time started nurturing an interest in painting and poetry.
