In its endeavor to celebrate innovative art and collectibles, it just recently promoted the ‘Colors of Art Show of Indian Contemporary Art” that comprised the works of a selection of young Indian practitioners. The exhibition displayed over 40 art works and will showcase the paintings by over 15 Indian senior as well as known young artists like Ami Patel, Ompal Sasanwal, and Bhuwan Silhare to name a few to highlight how Indian contemporary art has spread its wings to a new display terrain where art connoisseurs and collectors are set for a visual treat.

A strong sense of design is also a characteristic of Indian art and can be observed in most of the artworks on display in different modern as well as in the traditional forms at the exhibition. Speaking on the eve of its new exhibition, the director elaborated:”This is the second year for an Indian exhibition and I’m sure once again our artists hailing from India would set a benchmark of high standards for its diverse cultural moorings and expressions.” The gallery is located at Palm Strip Shopping Mall on Jumeirah Beach Road. The Indian art exhibition was held in collaboration with Artland Gallery, Mumbai.

  1. Mumbai always fascinated Artist Bhuwan Silhare. He made a series of paintings in and around V.T.(CST) from different angles at different times and different seasons to bring out the best profile of the structures, to give back to the city which never failed to charm him. He recently held his solo exhibition of paintings - Mumbai Forever at the Kamalnayan Bajaj Art Gallery in Mumbai.
