Sandeep Dhopate

Placeholder
Sandeep  Dhopate

Born: 1975

Hometown: Mumbai, India

Lives and Works: Mumbai, India

 

Sandeep’s works explore the intersections between religion, spirituality and sexuality often questioning our current moral values 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.
