Debut Solo Exhibition of Dhimant Vyas at Hirji Jehangir, Mumbai
Vyas presents ‘Natura’ solo exhibition of paintings at Hirji Jehangir Art Gallery Mumbai...
Artist and Animation Film Designer, Dhimant Vyas's world is
filled with the rich colors, flavours and details of the stories he has heard, literature
he has read, and music he listens to... sounds that fill his days and life experiences. In his paintings, these coalesce to take a visual
form—sometimes they connect and make a continuum of meaning. Sometimes, they
become a means for self-expression.
In the series “Natura", Dhimant works with a new style synthesized from a fusion of folk
art and imaginative world art. At its base are Mother Nature and her many
fascinating representations in Indian folk art. She anchors this series,
probably representing the artist's deep concern about her erosion in our race for
urbanization and a sense of urgency to get reconnected with her.

The artist overlays this with the Yantra motif. To him, these Yantras are the bridges that connect
the earth with a subliminal fantasy world. They lend both solidity with their
details and other worldliness to his work. Through this layered lens, Dhimant views his characters, culture, emotions and instances. They are sometimes
poignant, sometimes funny and sometimes even trippy.
The medium is Arches and Fabriano paper painted with watercolour to complement the richness that the artist intended to bring alive. Ethnic colours add fullness. Original gold foil is the finishing touch.
