Born on January 6, 1971, Vijay M Dhore originally hails from Hyderabad. He started his journey with figurative paintings, then tried exploring different styles including abstract. He loves travelling and has been to different places in India to understand the architecture and its impact on culture. He likes to experiment with diverse landscapes and you can observe a lot of inspiration from architectural excellence reminiscent of Hampi, Rajasthan and the Mughals.
His uniqueness lies in the desire to capture and immortalise the authenticity of an era and its beauty. He maintains the texture of his style, but also ensures that the raw charisma of ancient architecture remains intact in his works. He believes in refraining from giving a whole new contemporary look to old structures. Like the proverb, he plays by “Old is Gold”.
