Merging traditional aesthetics with contemporary sensibilities; mixing the classical with the experimental; folk with the urban; breaking boundaries...
Our multifarious and eclectic curations celebrate the richness of the Indian aesthetic experience across mediums and genres.
Contemporary Paintings: Reflecting the diverse practices extant in Indian art today, this section presents the mediums of painting, drawing, and other mixed media works by contemporary artists. While we also showcase senior and established artists, the curation has a strong focus on supporting the work of emerging artists who negotiate multiple formal spaces, from vocabularies inspired by traditional Indian aesthetics to more contemporary iconographies.
Traditional Paintings: feature various traditional / folk / regional styles of Indian painting, most of which are contemporary living traditions, but have a rich historical background. Some of our favourite idioms here include Cheriyal Painting (Telangana, South India), the Bikaner School (Rajasthan), and Jaipur school miniatures.
