SANDEEP DHOPATE

 

 

Sandeep’s works explore the intersections between religion, spirituality and sexuality often questioning our current moral value system established through a mass blind acceptance of a generalised truth.
His unique visual style, Indian in its aesthetics, uses  colours and symbolisms to further his stories. His approach towards staged portraiture creates a tension between what is real and what is fiction. By challenging widely held understandings of Indian culture, he employs a narrative style that blurs the lines between reality and fiction often forcing the viewer to think about parallel interpretations of contemporary beliefs. 
A recipient of several awards, he has regularly displayed his works at exhibitions and photo festivals both in India and internationally
