My forthcoming exhibition will be on chaning life patterns due to drastically changing environment. I would love to open a debate for those who belong to the art faternity about their reactions and how they think of addressing the most critical issue of life on this planet. Are we actually aware of our planet, our environment, the changes occuring in our ecosystems or are we still waiting for some major awakening???

About Me
Aakriti Art Gallery is one of the most vibrantly active venues of art in Kolkata, India. Its exhibits range from works of artists who are groundbreaking contemporary visionaries, young upcoming talents or historical masters. Founded in 2005, the Gallery has today more than 1000 works in its collection which are put on display by rotation. Its new wing adjoining the primary gallery space, now has a permanent gallery for showcasing sculptures exclusively.

One of the core activities of Aakriti, which is pursued at tandem with its regular programme, is promotion of young and upcoming talents. Providing them a platform to launch their artistic careers, stock their works and even buy the work outright that shows promise and creative uniqueness motivates us as much as exhibiting for famous personalities from the art world.

Why buy art?

"Art is something you buy because you are financially solvent enough to give yourself the pleasure of living with great works rather than having to see them in museums"
