Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan have nothing but praises for the talent of artist and animation film designer, Dhimant Vyas with whom they have had an eventful journey. Dhimant has collaborated with many luminaries from the Indian film industry on several reputed projects. With Aamir Khan, Dhimant designed the title animation sequence for his directorial venture Taare Zameen Par.
Aamir Khan lauded him for his efforts and for creating something that not only appealed to children but captured the imagination of adults as well. Aamir had said, “Dhimant is an extremely talented artist whom I got introduced to when he made the caricatures of the Lagaan characters and subsequently did the ‘claymation’ for the title sequence of Taare Zameen Par. Both times, he blew my mind. I am a big fan of his work and look forward to his exhibition”.
Dhimant’s work has received appreciation from several other film personalities including the legendary Amitabh Bachchan who called his paintings “unique”. An exhibition of the artist’s work is being conducted from December 26 to January 1. Talking about it, Vyas said, “What makes this exhibition special for me is the fact that my daughter Kavya Vyas, too, will be showcasing a lot of her work. Fishes have always resonated a feeling of harmony and inner peace in Kavya. Her paintings are a window to her exploration of the elusive meaning of life—themes of creation, love, beauty, endless journey, self-realisation—through the flow, forms, sizes, colours, and patterns of fishes. While my daughter grew up to be an artist like me, she has a distinctive style of her own that helps her stand out.”
