Atul Dodiya

Atul Dodiya

Atul Dodiya graduated from Sir J. J. School of Art in Mumbai with a Bachelor degree in fine
arts. He continued his art education at the  École des Beaux-Arts  in Paris, where his work
took a histrionic shift and he began to amalgamate East and West with renewed perception.
In spite of being entrenched in his home in Bombay and Indian traditional practice, he
alludes to global art historical and political metaphors in his multifarious art practice. Atul
Dodiya employs politics, personal mythology and art history in order to interweave global
and public recollection with native and individual involvement, and channels them through
his paintings and installations He is also profoundly inspired by poetry and prose, particularly
in his mother tongue of Gujarati. He has engaged with new approaches and spaces, praxis
and discourses. His selected solo exhibitions include 'Atul Dodiya - Girlfriends: French,
German, Italian, Egyptian, Santiniketan, Ghatkopar', Vadehra Art Gallery, Mumbai (2017);
Mahatma and the Masters, Galerie Daniel Templon, Brussels (2015); 'Atul Dodiya',
