Born in1974, Mandawar in Rajasthan. Dileep Sharma did his graduation in art from the Rajasthan School of Arts in Jaipur and Master’s Degree in printmaking from Sir J. J. School of Arts in Mumbai. He has further refined his skills by attending series of workshops and residencies. His repertoire includes a fine collection of prints, drawings and watercolours mostly on paper that make dramatic pictorial narratives about contemporary society with a touch of satire. Under his pseudonym Kunwarji his adventures extend to include a heady mix of pop culture, sexuality and socio political issues as reflected in an interface between ethnic mythologies and urban life today. There is a clear influence of miniature painting and folk arts with fun underpinning in all his densely rendered work that includes divergent subjects from religious icons to mundane objects. Dileep’s colourful motifs within images coupled with their cropping, fragmentation and inter mixing makes a satire on our fleeting world dominated by media and advertisements. Exhibited in several solo and group shows in various Indian metros as well as internationally including London, Seoul, and Vienna, the artist has received Honorable Mention Award at 6th International Biennial of Print at Bharat Bhavan, Bhopal amongst others. He lives in Mumbai and works out of his studio at home.
