Best known for his sculptures, Dhruva Mistry combines religious art of ancient civilizations along with the popular art of the bazaar.  His works bear a rich narrative quality and varies in style and scale- from small sculptures in bronze to monumental works for public spaces, made of sand, cement, stone and stainless steel.

Dhruva Mistry studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Maharaja Sayajirao University, Baroda (1974-81) before going on to study further at the Royal College of Art, London (1981-83) on a British Council Scholarship. He has had several solo and group shows in India and abroad since 1976.

His first art was mounted at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai (1982). In the year between 1984 and ’85, Mistry was an artist in residence at Kettle’s Yard Gallery with a Fellowship at Churchill College, Cambridge.  Since then Mistry has exhibited extensively in United Kingdom, Europe and Japan.

His works have been included in several prestigious collections including those at the Lalit Kala Akademi, the Tate Gallery, the Arts Council, the British Council, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff, and the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan.

His public-art installations include a sculptural pieces installed at Goodwood, Sussex, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and the Hakone Open Air Museum, Japan. Mistry has also been commissioned to produce sculptures for the Victoria Square in Birmingham, U.K and Tamano City, Japan.

In 1994, he was selected by the Fukuoka Art Museum, Japan, to mount his works at the show, Asian Artists Today – Fukuoka Annual VII. In 1991,  Mistry was given the honour of being elected into the Royal Academy of Arts, and in 1993, was invited to be a Fellow with the Royal Society of British Sculptors, London.  On returning to Baroda, in 1997, he was appointed as Professor, Head of Sculpture and Dean of Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S.University, Baroda.  In 2001, he was awarded the prestigious, Honorary CBE (Commander of the most excellent Order of the British Empire).
