If India is one of the youngest nations as per number of youngsters in population, let us not ignore the number of creative young minds and hands all set to express. No wonder art galleries are mushrooming all over, particularly in the bigger cities. Many art lovers are not gallery hoppers and we feel, Art that is well presented is better enjoyed and it must reach the true ‘Rasik’. Art Observer is one such step in the same direction.
We feature a potpourri of art, artists from past and present, art patrons and art institutions that have created history.
Our gallery-trotting contributors have covered The India Art Fair 2020, India-Bangladesh Printmaking Exhibition, Art Fair Spain and many new and notable works, exhibitions and events.
One of the oldest art galleries in Delhi- Dhoomimal has its own rich history that Mohit Jain has shared in conversation. Old masters’ works have a lot to inspire, be it Joan Miró’s sparks on canvas or Swaminathan’s spiritual journey through colour and canvas.
An ancient Institution with glorious heritage has been well worded by D S Kapoor.
In this promising year 2020, we can’t ignore the younger generation and feel highly responsible to make sure that they are given the right guidance, direction and above all freedom of expression. Child Art will always be of special concern for us.
I hope that this issue inspires you to join us in this exercise of art appreciation.
Welcome to our introductory issue of Art Observer!
