When buying from an artist/maker, you are buying more than just an object/painting. You are buying hundred of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks, and months of frustration and moment of pure joy. You are not just buying a thing, you are buying a piece of heart, part of soul, a moment of someone’s life. Most importantly, you are buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about.
Art is the creativity and hard work of ones mind which pleases others eyes. One must consider art as art, not as an investment. By thinking that a painting from a master will give profit after a few years is just a probability but not reality. There are many young artists who have made outstanding art pieces but their art works are unsold because of the fact that people have higher interest in buying art works of masters and known artists with the purpose of making money out of them.
But the fact is that after 10 years what market would be like no ones knows. One must stop and shop pieces of art by young and talented artists so that they also become a master one day. We must give a chance to young artists to build confidence in them so that they grow in there career globally.
Dhoomimal Gallery brought exceptionally interesting, affordable and accessible art works to create awareness about art by opening an ART MARKET in the heart of the city which will range between Rs. 3,000-40,000 There were young artists doing live painting with music. Our aim was to promote young artists globally. We will be doing art market every Wednesday in the evening for the awareness of public who are interested in art but they don’t step into the gallery by thinking that they won’t be able to afford it. To get rid of the challenges in Indian art is the desperate need and it is really important to create an equal public awareness for art itself. In a country where urban life is entirely out of doors, the invitation to open the gallery doors is a natural expectation. Obviously, the public’s participation with art can only come through intense visibility. While the art summits are a big draw and do create the carnival atmosphere, they are still indoors and exclusive events. A serious public interest is possible only when public art becomes as energetic and spirited as Indian street life itself.
