“PHOBIAS”An Art Exhibition by senior artist DINSHAW MOGRELIA


A senior artist, Dinshaw Mogrelia, will be showing his thematic work in a solo art show. It will be displayed at the Jehangir Art Gallery, Auditorium Hall, M.G. Road, Kala Ghoda, Mumbai 400 001, from 28th June to 4th July 2022 between 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. It is his first art show, at the ripe old age of 83 and though he has been a professional artist throughout his life, he has never ever exhibited his work at a gallery, earlier in life. His work dabbles in the mysterious world of phobias, and spans a range of mediums from water colours to pen and ink. These anxiety inducing fears in human beings, find a unique interpretation through his distinctive pictorial style.

Artist: Dinshaw Mogrelia 

This show is curated by Hetal Shukla

Dinshaw Mogrelia hails from Nashik where he was born on 21stJune 1939. He moved to Mumbai in 1947, after India became independent. He graduated from the Sir J.J. School of Arts, Mumbai, in 1964. He pursued art even in his professional life, finding work as an illustrator and designer. He has also been awarded for his work, by reputed institutions.

Dinshaw has had a first-hand experience of phobias, since himself suffered from a few, from an early age. His condition also stemmed from the turbulent times that he went through, during his professional life as well.

This deeply influenced his work and has also given him an unparalleled understanding of the phobias, and the way they affect the human mind. His thorough understanding of the human emotions and his ability to translate them into comprehensive pictorial representations has now become his sole passion. This is what finds an expression in his art, which spans over six decades.

A Phobia is an excessive and irrational reaction of the mind that is fuelled by fear. It is also called fear psychosis or a syndrome that is present within a human being. Whatever may be the cause of this fear, leading to the paralysing effect experienced by human beings, the manifestation of a phobia generally surfaces in the mind, leading to specific actions or reactions.

These reactions develop over time and continue to deeply influence the human mind, unless treated in proper time. The fears can be induced by a range of situations, objects, animals, or anything else that can strongly influence the general mental status of a human being. In Phobias, Dinshaw Mogrelia gives us a glimpse into over a hundred and twenty different phobias, in his distinctive style. With this series of pictorial representations, he also aims to make these conditions and their psychological effects relatable to a wider audience. This work has been compiled over sixty long years, illustrating his dedication and commitment to bringing phobias into the mainstream.

From: 28th June to 4th July 2022
