There are numerous artists and film designers who are immensely talented and have made successful achievements in this industry. There is always the best of everything and one of the greatest is “Animation Star “, that’s on this Earth.  This was started by Dhimant Vyas who was born on 2nd October 1965 who is an Artist and an Animation Film Designer. Dhimant Vyas is a veteran artist besides being a film designer. At Zynga Games Ind he was a creative director.

His talent is known worldwide. He graduated from Ahmadabad, Gujarat in 1995.

His paintings are full of the rich colours flavours and give out the details of each and every story. He is fond of listening to literature works he’s a voracious reader and listens to music, which fills his day and makes him handle with daily experiences. His paintings are a combination of visual forms. Though sometimes they connect to the audience and give away the meaning or they are sometimes just his personal experiences.

Amongst his series of painting, “Natura”, is the one in which he has worked in a new style where he had synchronized folk art and imaginative world art. The bases of this painting is Mother Nature and her numerous amazing representations in Indian folk art. She controls these series as perhaps a representation of his deep concern about her erosion in our mad race for urbanization and an urgent requirement to get things back to her. He has also overlaid this with Yantra motifs. According to him these Yantras are bridges which connect the earth with an imaginary world. They lend both: solid details and other global appeal to his works. Through this whole layered lens he has visualized characters, cultures, emotions and other instances. Sometimes, they are poignant, hilarious and trippy.
