The vintage walls at Hawa Mahal were dotted with the melange paintings, sculpture and artwork made out of metal casting, wood crafts and paintings illustrated with mezzotint, etching, water colours and other media.

These vivid forms of art were created by Dolly Dhillon, who showcased her exclusive paintings, prints including the rare sculptures in her solo show titled 'Taabiir - Interpretation of dreams' at Hawa Mahal.

Dolly has been a late entrant in the world of art and creativity. Early life was involved family responsibility which kept her away from painting and taking up art as a career option.

But today, she explored her horizon and plunged head-long into her creative endeavours.

Dolly settles down for a conversation with The Hans India, she says, "I always had passion for art but couldn't get to it because of family responsibilities.

In 2011, I decided to take it seriously and did Bachelor of Fine Arts from Andhra University and later I did my master's in fine arts in print making."

These six years of studies have opened up a new world of freedom in expressing her creativity. She ventured out of her comfort zone and started going out of the city for art shows, she further says, "I attended art shows out of the city as well.

I have done few works for Marriot, whenever a thought strikes my mind, I carve it in the form of art instantly. I don't stick to a particular theme, I like being versatile and besides, I love to experiment with each and every medium."

When asked about her work, she responds, "I have done sculptures, I have done prints, I have done paintings out of what I have learnt all three years in the university.

I have a studio of my own with my work and equipment needed for print making. Well, the different medium demands different material. If I do oil painting, I use oil colours, I use oil pastels, acrylics in sculpture.

I have done sculpture in wood and bronze. In printings, wood cut is my choice. The series of insects I have cast is my favourite among all artworks" she concludes.
