About Artist

Kiran Dayal was born in 1995 in Delhi, where she currently lives and works. Dayal completed her graduation in fine arts from the Arunachal University of Studies. Dayal's work was evolved during and after her graduation years as she found herself wondering about communities at risk such as refugees, women, children. She maneuvered, exploring the relationship of diverse identities and hypocrisies as well as dogmas attached; socio-cultural aspects thus became central for her. The substructure of Dayal's explorations has always been of acceptance, inclusion, dignity, and tolerance. Dayal’s inclination towards community engagement and being part of the field-work, rose, from the questions of her motive of creating and role of an artist. How can she situate her art practice and herself as a value to society? such inquiries motivated her to pursue post-graduation in Social Design from Ambedkar University, Delhi. Dayal is working in the development sector for education facilitation for underprivileged children in Delhi and Rajasthan, building women's community and more. Dayal aims to contribute to the new juxtapositions of community engagement, co-creation, and art led change; Dayal situates symbolism as her tool and creates a range of works that vary in material that is clay and paper. She began from realism; communication has always been her purpose and while navigating for the same she found her inclination towards symbolism. She makes Paintings, Drawings, as well as 2D and 3D clay, works. Dayal explores textures & mediums, shifting freely as my ideas demand; deciphering from past text and data available on the subject matter and sometimes letting the personal experiences take the lead as an Indian girl brought up in a conservative family while exploring the self as a woman. Narrations of her works address the ideas of Being and Becoming with constant underpinnings of acceptance, inclusion, dignity, co-existence, tolerance, equality, and ideas of post-humanism in existing times.

I usually don't get dreams but when I do I make sure I am able to capture the most or the least. Here is one of those sweet dreams that I captured after a nap. Do dreams convey? what do they convey? why do you dream what you dream? It is a window to one's subconscious mind.
