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. This print Mascot is a conjunction of current state of regime changes and transitions in patriarchal society and gender roles, which the artist has symbolized via tomboy cavorting on the back of an anthropomorphized boar, iconic of Varha from Indian mythology, who once resurrected the earth from deluge and established the new cycle of life.
