Desi Art: Deep Dhillon

Thursday, January 27, 2011

I was lucky enough to come across super talented Seattle artist Deep Dhillon a little while ago. I remember how instantly I was drawn to his colourful pieces. I loved how his sketches and paintings moved with all those rough brush strokes. I have to admit, I love the whole desi vibe of his work too. Its not that often (hardly ever) that you see many Sikh artists on the scene and being a Sikh myself, I find it thrilling that you actually see some Sikh art subjects. You can check out Deep's blogs here & here and see how he captures his adventures with his family. 
This one looks like the artist himself. Image via here. 
Gurdwara at Night. Lovely. Image via here.
Sardar and boy on Motorcycle. Reminds me of my grandpa when he was a young army officer. Image via here.
 My favourite one. I could see this one in my house and I would love telling people what its called.  Biji's in the Pind. I love this title (means 'grandmas in the village'). Image via here.

Deep does interesting things, as does his wife, Ameen. It's fun to know that Deep is a world class technologist (software) as well. Gives one hope there -are- such Renaissance men running around in our midst.

Oh wow, this is really fab stuff. And that he is from Seattle, a city near and dear to me, is just icing on the cake! Love it DW!
