In every home or work space the placement of paintings always tends to add color and brings out a whole new perspective to the ambience of a space. It is said that “A picture paints a thousand words” and any art piece can always be a conversational piece in any surrounding. Be it a collector’s piece or a quirky piece that catches one’s eye, every picture or art will always bring out a personality of the buyer and when placed in a space, it will further enhance that area to either bring out the personality of the home owner or the foundations of a company. In this piece, I decided to explore the myriad of paintings and sketches by local Indian talents that are available from Art & Beyond.

Art & Beyond is a Bangalore based company that specializes in promoting the art of Indian artists. The White Lotus has had the pleasure of working with Art & Beyond in purchasing and recommending art pieces from Art & Beyond. For more information click here Art & Beyond
Remember, nowadays owning a painting, is something we can all indulge in. In the past, there was this mindset that art pieces were either expensive or were catered to “art collectors” or a select few. I personally felt that owning an art piece was only for that selects few and a distant dream for me.

However, the advent of art being brought into the mainstream, I realized art pieces are very much affordable and we now have a broad platform to choose from – pieces that tickle our fancy and choices without it having to break our bank account, to indulge in the visual pleasure that an art piece provides. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of selecting a few pieces for myself of which hangs proudly on my wall.

Below are some of the art pieces that I have purchased. Recently I was drawn to and purchased a piece by Manjunath Wali, from his Tuk Tuk series – a piece that invoked a fun, free-spirited energy in the quirkiest way.

Remya Kumar is an Architect by professional qualification, but ever since she began seriously painting in 2009, art has become her chosen means of creative expression, and now her profession. She has always found joy in painting and sketching from a young age. She loves the challenge of a blank canvas, the promise that it holds, and thrill of experiencing a work of art blossom from that emptiness. In her own words, “Painting for me is most joyous when it is spontaneous and intuitive; where one stroke of the palette
knife beckons the next, one colour asks for another, and the process is unforced”.

Subrata Ghosh, a contemporary artist from Kolkata and an art graduate from Rabindra Bharati University. His art style is greatly influences by Indian classical art. The Ajanta figures and Gupta sculptures makes an imprint in his delineation of form. There is an element of three dimensions, playing with duality of light and shade in his figuration. The floral elements, rhythmic plants and creepers, flying birds decorate the tranquil faces and
figures in his. His paintings are assimilation of the two opposing approach – Classicism and Romanticism.
