Devraj Dakoji (b. 1944, Dharmoj Gudam, India) is a visual artist working in printmaking, drawing and painting. Dakoji’s heritage is a strong influence on his work and worldview, as we can see in bodies of work titled, Pranamu and Wheel of Life. He looks to tradition to develop a visual vernacular of animalistic and phantasmagoric imagery. Pranamu, or life force, is a concept at the heart of his work. He is a Master Printer at Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop and is based in New York City.
