Best known for his sculptures, Dhruva Mistry combines religious art of ancient civilizations along with the popular art of the bazaar. His works bear a rich narrative quality and varies in style and scale- from small sculptures in bronze to monumental works for public spaces, made of sand, cement, stone and stainless steel.

His works, apart from being conceptual, also engage with the process of art-making, while alluding to the intellectual debate between the artist and viewer, whether implied or expressed, that a work of art premises and/or gives rise to.

Mistry’s present oeuvre Steel, Stainless Still, comprises of free standing sculptures and reliefs where he has explored the materiality of steel in terms of its contrasts. While he brings forth the frigidness of the material, he also discovers sensuality in the medium. The smooth unblemished surface of the material provides Mistry with singular possibilities which he seizes to reveal. Time and again, Mistry explores the surrounding boundaries of space where his figures are planted. The artist’s desire for simplicity prompted him to incorporate the elemental forms of the square and circle in the current oeuvre, identified as Kaliscape, Spatial Diagram, Still Life, Maya Medallion and Maya Head, a reduction to the basic elements of shapes that constitute life around one.
