Dipo Doherty

 

Dipo Doherty is a painter whose work explores the language of spatial geometry. He seeks to define a vocabulary in his work that unites his African heritage and a scientific background; a socio-scientific synthesis, with the human body being at the centre-point of his practice. Doherty’s paintings break down the body, creating fragmented and skewed perspectives with parts scattered throughout the canvas. This surrealist metaphor suggests the continuous flux through time and the ripple effect that our existence has on our surroundings. Doherty earned his Bsc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Virginia and is a self-taught artist.
