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
Exhibited in several solo and group show’s in various Indian metros as well as internationally at London, Paris, New York, Seoul, Tokyo, Dhaka and Vienna, Dileep Sharma is a recipient of several awards including the Kochi International Triennial Exhibition of Prints in Japan twice, the 6th International Biennial in Prints at Bharat Bhavan in Bhopal and ‘ASIA BELT’ in Seoul International print, photo art fair in Korea, besides others.
