About the artists
Nilima first explored pottery at Uzumako school in Tokyo for 5 months in 2018, and continued at 'Kumbharwada' in Dharavi, Mumbai for a year. Despite a busy role as a film producer, she established her studio 'I got fired!' in Mumbai in 2020.
Nilima primarily work with stoneware and terracotta, creating tableware and vases. For this exhibition, she has collaborated with Suresh Eriyat, a filmmaker and illustrator.
Suresh Eriyat is a 1997 graduate of National Institute of Design where he specialised in Animation Film Design. Prospects of creating original animated stories in India back in the 90s being very nascent, he, in collaboration with Famous Studios, set up Famous House of Animation in 1998 and through that landmark venture he created numerous animated ads, shorts, music videos with many firsts, which brought not only national and international recognitions but also changed the way people perceived animation in India.
In 2009 he started Studio Eeksaurus with his wife Nilima Eriyat as partner. Suresh is also deeply interest in philosophy, anthropology and culture.
