Dilip Sheth's paintings reflect the two divergent cultures in which he has lived. His early exposure to African art surfaces in his distinct style, and adds warm, balancing tones to his striking palette. Western culture's emphasis on individuality is also visible in his work, delineated by the heavy outlines that identify a Dilip Sheth painting.
His figures are treated with an artist's reverence for beauty but with imagination as well, taking on slightly surreal proportions within everyday settings. Faces and elements become familiar, often reappearing in later compositions. Through his bold use of color, the real world he sees, becomes his world on canvas.
Born and raised in Ethiopia, Dilip Sheth immigrated to America in 1980. Though managing business most of his adult life, his greatest moment was when he chose to work with the artistic eye he's had since childhood. Currently, Dilip resides in Washington, DC.
Color and composition are two key ingredients in my paintings...........
