His first preview solo show was held in Baroda (2012). His first solo show was held at 1,Shanthi Road, Bangalore (2014). He has organised printmaking and serigraphy workshops in Veer Narmad South Gujarat University-Surat and collography workshop for students from Utkarsh Vidyalaya, at Space Studio. His artworks have been selected for several exhibitions and curated group shows in reputed galleries of Mumbai, Bangalore, Baroda, Ernakulam, Kochi, and New Delhi in India, and in Seoul and Busan - Korea, and Ville de Sarcelle- France. Sajeev's drawings maintain an aesthetic restraint characterised by measured etchings on the surface. His depiction of the mundane activities, still life and interiors meditate on the ideas of presence and absence, spaces of domesticity with an astute political sensibility. Instead of camera Sajeev documents our world through his pen and watercolour.
