About Trupti Dave



Trupti Dave is among Gujarat’s leading contemporary female artists. Born in Bhavnagar, she has completed Bachelor of Architecture from M.S. University, Baroda. She is an established Architect and an Interior Designer and has been successfully practicing since 1989.

She was introduced to the world of colors at a tender age of 6 by her parents. Her journey to her identity as a painter, a person and an architect began then – her pencil and crayons becoming her lens and a method for her expression. Her drawings became her friends. Oblivious to what the future held for her, it was then when she had embarked upon her journey of learning and unlearning which she is still on, 50 years later. Growing up in a house that greatly appreciated and encouraged every form of art, she was fortunate enough to also learnt classical dance, music under great gurus – she started learning Kathak and vocal classical at a very young age and completed her visharad and shiksha visharad. She learnt basic composition of paintings under the guidance of eminent artist Late Shri Khodidas Parmar & Late Shri Somalal Shah.

Under the influence of the same artistic atmosphere she was raised in and something so deeply etched in her being; she continued to paint as a student of Architecture where she studied space and materials and while she enjoyed designing using scales, she never abandoned her sketching and painting. Instead, the knowledge only helped her visualize her own scale in the space and universe, participating in many group shows in Gujarat.

Over the years she has evolved her own style and technique as an artist and says, “Being an Architect and an Interior Designer has helped me evolve my own style of expressions as an artist, which certainly is an outcome of many years of practice. I can proudly compliment myself being on the road to mastering the art of using bold colors and shapes with various mediums, creating an energetic visual impact.”

Her paintings are based on the meditative energy which she experiences during her meditation. They reflect her meditative state of mind, when unconscious efforts are reflections of harmonious state of inner self, beliefs, emotions and energy. She derives inspiration from the supreme power & hence her work reflects various energy forms, be it Shiv- Shakti, Sufism or Zen

Her ability to work with various mediums and different textures; shapes and style has made her work a universal art. Her daringness in selecting bold and vibrant colors for her canvas speaks volumes about her work and her style.

Many of her artworks belong in private collections in India and abroad.
