Through Dilip Chobisa’s constructed rendition of the mystery, the idea of the hidden is formed by what is revealed. This is achieved by way of a curtain, a hallway, a beam of light or a suggestive stairway. He disregards the laws of architecture, yet creates an order of intrigue and curiosity. His drawings are defined by light or the lack of it, suggesting dark silences and pronounced emptiness. He challenges the limits of perception and makes visible the possibility of a space beyond the defined. He also dabbles with Photography.
The artist has participated in several groyp shows including Working Space—around memory and perception, curated by Roobina Karode and presented by Paradox and 1×1 Gallery, Singapore; In you is the Illusion of Each Day, curated by Maya Kovskaya in Latitude 28 ; Aicon Gallery, London . He has also shown in Kiran Nadar Museum, New Delhi; Leila Heller Gallery, New York; Gallery Espace, Delhi to name a few.
His public art projects include the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport Commission, Mumbai  and the Indira Gandhi International Airport Commission, New Delhi . He has been the recipient of the Harmony Art Foundation Emerging Artist award of the Year, 2008.
