ARTICLE: The young emerge big

4th October 2013

"The art world has been abuzz with fresh and new talent emerging from all corners of India.

The ease at which art is being pursued is heartwarming. Art is no longer rubbished as a third choice career. Now, the need of the hour is to promote fresh talent. Despite the fact that the art market is facing a slump right now yet the startling fact is that there has been no shortage of the spirit shown by younger artists. One of the reasons why everyone is looking at younger artists is their variety and technical prowess, and also the affordable price range. It's nice to see that plenty of art spaces are coming up with a bigger magnitude and provide bigger opportunities for the younger artists. An art space like Kalarasa is the first of its kind private initiative housing all art forms under one roof. There are other relevant spaces in Delhi like Kiran Nadar Museum of Art which also undertakes interactive events, 1 Shanti Road in Bengaluru and not to forget the Space Studio in Baroda which serves as the meeting hub of artists and connoisseurs.

There is also the National Gallery of Modern Art which serves as a one-stop for art awareness. These spaces provide a plat form and act as a bridge between the artists and art connoisseurs. Galleries must take up the mantle to pro mote young artists and assist them with financial funds as several extremely talented artists, due to lack of funds and failure in selling their works, have landed in different careers to make ends meet. While there is immense respect for seniors, young artists also deserve an appropriate space.

Looking at art investment is always a thing of passion that requires homework. New collectors need to look at the works of younger artists as they are affordable and add variety. But before going for any young artist's work, one must always do a ground check on the artist, how versatile their work is, how skillful the techniques and if the artist has received enough reviews and awards.

The main perspective to look at is how creatively the artist is different. At all times, a collector must request an authenticity certificate as it is essential for resale or copyright issues. Never buy the artwork keeping returns in mind. Buy an artwork because you love it and feel proud to own it. Its value will grow value will grow over time. Flaunt your paintings on the walls and show the world that you are among the elite who col lect art. Having curated shows featuring young artists, some of the talented ones are Aishwaryan K., Santhosh C.H., Rupesh Patric, Sujata Sah Sejekan, Praveen Kumar, Santosh Andrade, Nityananda Ojha."
