About the Artist
Dileep Sharma did his MFA in printmaking from Sir J. J. School of Art, Mumbai. The motifs in his work stand out as similes of his experiences of the place he belong to, further juxtaposed with his contemporary existence in an urban setting.
The generated imprints of artist’s psyche are idiomatic expressions of the modernist vocabularies and globalist idiosyncrasies. For instance, in this print African Safari
, a dusky model wrapped with flowers along with various relevant motifs, mounted on fragmented palms, is a satirical manifestation of the modern-day world full of advertisements, media hype, promotional gimmicks and fleeting fame.
This print is a ink-jet print on archival paper with the involvement and approval of the artist who decides the number of impressions to be made for a particular artwork, calling it an edition. Each print is then numbered and signed by the artist.
Such editions allow more people to enjoy and own these works of art. After the edition is sold out no more prints will be made, making it a limited edition.
