About the Artist
Art in its myriad forms is central to Dimple's being and is reflected in every aspect of her life's journey.
She is a B.F.A (Applied Arts) Degree holder from Sir J. J. School of Applied Arts and has always had an inclination towards fine arts. She believes in creating brand names and has worked on branding and logo designing to create ad campaigns as part of the Advertising industry for the last 20 years.
She started her career with Ogilvy working on brands like Close Up, Unilever, Tata Sumo, Tata Safari, American Express and Star India TV. She then moved to more design centric agencies like Umbrella and People Advertising Agency, continuing to work on brand communication for clients like JW Marriott, Bharat Forge, FedEx and Streax Pro. Her forte is creating concepts ranging from 5 cc ads to digital graphics in square feet. Her campaigns are not limited to just an idea on paper but through all mediums of communication. Her expertise ranges from advertising to illustration in children’s books, aerospace to lifestyle and fashion. She is currently a visiting professor teaching First Year Students at Atlas Skilltech University, Mumbai. She continues her love for art by expressing it in different ways via different mediums. Every aspect of creativity is explored and she welcomes new challenges to expand her repertoire. She believes that there is no limit to creativity and no limit to a canvas.
She says, "Nature is the undercurrent in my work. Sometimes abstract, sometimes realistic and sometimes romantic. Nature brings me tranquillity and calms my mind. My paintings are a song that I draw for the world that needs to hear more than the growing concrete jungle. Nature inspires me to encapsulate it in my space forever. While each flower is unique, we categorize them all under a common name. However, each flower is still different and has its own identity. Each leaf has its own journey.”
On her current collection, ‘Ode to Nature’
"My collection celebrates nature and preserves it. To thee (nature), I dedicate this canvas, as I cherish all the journeys that have inspired me to paint. Themes in my collection are beyond the palette, but are reflections of nature out there, waiting to be framed. I have worked with Acrylics as a medium and my style of work has Palette Knife painting. My paintings capture movement and life; hence they are not stagnant. The colour tones are fresh yet have a dark contrast. This is a representation of the poet in me capturing the joyful bright colours and my artistic side capturing the dark contrast."
