About Devraj Dakoji

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.
