Born in 1974 in Rajasthan, Dileep Sharma did his MFA in printmaking from Sir J. J. School of Art, Mumbai.
In a repertoire that includes prints, drawings and watercolours mostly on paper, he creates dramatic pictorial narratives about contemporary society with a touch of satire. There is a clear influence of miniature paintings and folk arts with fun underpinning his densely rendered work. The colourful motifs within images – coupled and cropped, fragmented and inter-mixed; make a satire on today’s fleeting world dominated by media and advertisements
