ATUL DODIYAb. 1959, Mumbai, India. Lives and works in Mumbai, India.
Atul Dodiya is one of the most prominent figures of contemporary Indian art. He draws on politics, art history and folklore for his work, as well as Indian and North American popular culture in the form of installation and painting. He works on subjects that layer and combine the traditions of his native land with art historical clichés including paying homage to famous artists. His series of dual imagery shutter doors is an important genre that he began in 1999 for his exhibition at the Tate Modern entitled Century City.
