Dimpy Menon is the first Indian sculptor to win the Lorenzo il Magnifico Bronze Award at the Florence Biennale. Dimpy has been called a “Natural” by World Sculpture magazine which said, “She captures the graceful, acrobatic movements of the human body with rare sensitivity.” Dimpy has had over 50 exhibitions in India and abroad, including at the Amsterdam-Whitney in New York. Recently, Dimpy Menon was invited as a speaker at the TEDx conference.
When the Oberoi Hotel in Mumbai re-opened its lobby after the terror attacks of 26/11 a prominent change was a bronze sculpture there by Dimpy Menon. The seven-foot composition has been described as “stunning” by the travel guru Mary Gostelow.
The CNN International told its patrons, “Don't miss the sculptures by Dimpy Menon dotted around the premises at the Trident in Bandra-Kurla.”
Open magazine pointed out that “Menon’s figures seem to defy the laws of physics… and yet, the muscled human bodies excite the viewers…”
Dimpy’s works have been specially commissioned by some of the largest hotel chains and corporate houses, including the Holiday Inn, Bangalore which hosts her spectacular composition that is over 20 ft high. The Oberoi, The Leela, The Marriott, Crowne Plaza, TVS, Indo-Us Venture, General Electric, National Semiconductor, Total Environment, VR Bengaluru and Jagriti Theatre are a few places where her commissioned works can be seen. Dimpy Menon lives and works in Bangalore.
