Sudarshan Shetty (born 1961) lives and works in Mumbai, India. Initially trained as a painter, Shetty later turned to sculpture and installations which now account for all of his practice. A conceptual artist, he is renowned for his enigmatic, sculptural installations, his hybrid constructions questioning the fusion of Indian and Western traditions, which are developed around a rigorous grammar of materials, mechanical exposure and unlikely juxtapositions of aspects from culturally distinct spheres. He is represented by Galerie Templon (Paris/Brussels) and Galerie Krinzinger (Vienna).
Art Dubai Portraits is a film series that provides a short perspective into the lives and workspaces of artists that are connected to the fair through its programming or participating galleries. The Art Dubai Portraits are produced in collaboration with Forward James Filmmakers.
