In a recent Studio Beat interview, that you can read it its entirety here, we see the artist at work in his studio, gorgeous works in progress leaning against walls. Dil Hildebrand describes to his interviewer and readers how he creates, saying– “In a regular classical painting of a vase on a table, there is pretending. However, what I’m trying to do is have the work physically pretend to be the thing.”
