Artists, especially budding artists find it tough to find a platform for their art and themselves. Public galleries don’t usually promote experimental art and unknown artists. At the same time, these artists often don’t have enough funds to sponsor themselves.
Art is an expensive business so making a name in the market, and attracting the attention of the ‘big-ticket galleries’ is always a challenge. The exception in this space is the Artizen Art Gallery, which promotes unknown names, exceptional talent and experimental art on all mediums. Artizen Art Gallery part of the PLB group, and known for supporting budding and talented artists, held an exhibition last weekend.
About the Exhibition
Inaugurated by eminent artists, Anita Kulkarni, and Vilas Kulkarni, the exhibition saw a lot of artists displaying their work at the gallery. Going by the footfall seen at the exhibition, the show at Artizen, turned out to be a massive success.
Based out of Noida, Vilas and Anita Kulkarni, embody the best of art and sculpture. Anita Kulkarni is a huge name in sculpture and paintings. She is known for putting vibrant colours to both canvas and sculpture, which break the boredom of straight lines. Vilas Kulkarni is known as an eclectic artist who has experimented on varied mediums in different stages of his career – such as stone, metal, terracotta, fibre-glass, cement, concrete, etc. Though his first love is acrylics, yet he’s equally famous for his murals and sculptures installed in different public places and offices.
This eminent artist couple’s presence itself is inspiring for the other artists.
