Indian Art

India has a long history of art – be it fine or performance arts. The country has produced some of the finest painters, sculptors, photographers, and dramatists. Though Indian has always been appreciated all over the globe, the focus was more on traditional and folk art like Pattachitra and Madhubani. Over the years, however, the situation has changed and Indian contemporary has been appreciated and artists like M.F. Hussain, Anjolie Ela Menon, Satish Gujral, and Manjit Bawa have seen tremendous commercial success.

There has also been an impressive increase in the number of fairs, exhibitions, and auctions in the country. India has also participated in Venice Biennale and Christie has held art auctions in the country. All of these augur well for the art scene in India and certainly encourages the upcoming artists to focus on their work because they are now aware that there is no dearth of art lovers who can appreciate good art when they see it.

Indian art galleries have played a significant role in popularising the works of contemporary artists in the country and abroad. By offering new and seasoned artists the platform to display their work to the public, they have succeeded in generating interest in the painters and their artworks, which have ultimately led to many success stories.

Bangalore-based Sublime Galleria, a modern gallery located in the UB City Skywalk is one such gallery. Established to promote the work of deserving artists, the gallery has an incredible collection of artworks and regularly hosts art exhibitions. The exhibitions are based on different themes and display works created using varied media. Some of the artists whose works have been exhibited include A.V. Ilango, M.D. Parashar, Sangeeta Singh, Sujata Sah Sejekan, Swati Pasari, and Thota Tharrani. It also holds art auctions of the paintings and other artworks displayed under its roof.

Apart from art shows, the gallery also conducts art workshops and symposia to spread awareness about and create opportunities for lovers to learn more about the history of art, the different media and techniques, and, of course, their favourite artists.

This unique gallery in Bangalore also plays host to Bengaluru, South India’s only contemporary art show, Berserk, an event dedicated to children, and Film Harvest, an international film festival.
