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.

10 Chancery Lane Gallery is proud to present Atul Dodiya for his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, Duplicator’s Dilemma, following his opening survey at the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi. Atul Dodiya (b. 1959) is a highly personal and referential artist often going into his subject matter in both a playful yet luringly dark ways. Being one of India’s most celebrated artists he works on subjects that layer and combine traditions of his native land with art historical clichés paying homage to famous artists such as Roy Lichtenstein seen in his newest series of shutter doors exhibiting at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery. The shutter doors bring the commonly seen Bombay shop fronts into the contemporary art genre. Dodiya uses the duplicity of imagery to play with wild contrasts of scenery.
