Ravinder Dutt was born in Delhi and is self taught. A student of History and hailing from a management background which he finally gave up for the love of art as painting has been an inseparable part of his life. Experimenting with different mediums to express his thoughts has always been a passion for him; starting with water colors, oils and acrylics – mixed media, digital and installation is what his forte is. As an artist he feels he is always evolving and considers change as the only constant. His visual art practice is greatly inspired by his deep interest in history, culture both tangible and intangible, archaeology, museums, theories of reincarnation, memories of the past, stories and experiences lived by him and his progenitors, absorptions of conscious and subconscious mind and is an attempt to de-code mysteries of the DNA which holds the vast data spread across generations of an individual. His works also emanate from acquiring an object and rebuilding stories around it. His work is nostalgic in nature and contemporizes the institutions and essence of the Mughal Empire and British Raj which once existed. It is also at times a satire on the society though coated in the grandeur of the era. The love for the city of Delhi and its monuments can be seen in works and is a tribute to the culture of the subcontinent. His works also try to find answers whether we all are recycled as living beings.
