ATUL DODIYA
b. 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.

ARTIST'S NEWS ATUL DODIYA IN CONVERSATION WITH ANNA DICKIE - OCULAXPRESSIONS OF REBELLION" - THE ECONOMIST, BY J.P.
18 Dec 2013
Read Atul Dodiya in conversation with Anna Dickie on Ocula online

Renowned Indian artist, Atul Dodiya recently opened his first solo exhibition at 10 Chancery Lane in Hong Kong. The exhibition, which is entitled Duplicator's Dilemma, takes places contemporaneously with the opening of an extensive survey of Dodiya’s work at the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi. Throughout his career, Dodiya has bought together and juxtaposed references from politics, art history and folklore for his work, as well as Indian and North American popular culture. He is probably best known for creating this amalgamation of visual imagery upon the metallic surface of shutter doors taken from Delhi shop fronts. The earliest shutter works were commissioned by the TATE Modern for its Century City exhibition, and now the latest iteration of this series appears in Hong Kong in the form of three large shutter works, which are contrasted beautifully with several delicate and poetic watercolours that also appear in the exhibition. Anna Dickie spoke to Atul Dodiya about his career, including what inspired him to become an artist, his passion for art history, and how his work reflects on India.
