The Egg Art Studio, a one of a kind art gallery to promote significant young and upcoming artists from the Indian subcontinent and across the world, is the latest addition to the art scene in the Capital a new gallery concept that is designed to bring the wonder back into art for cultural consumers.
The Egg Art Studio offers a complete experience of appraised national and international art, where each work within the gallery is evaluated for both its aesthetic and commercial potential. The Egg, as the name suggests, acts as an incubator where emerging artists are mentored and nurtured to their full potential, and their works are developed and curated in a way in which they may eventually be exhibited in museums worldwide.
The Egg aims to create a dialogue between those who know and those who don’t know about art, specifically making it more accessible and engaging. The organization behind the new initiative is implementing a number of important practices to ensure that the best possible experience and engagement can take place between visitors and buyers, working on the premise that art as investment has a larger gestation period than simply buying an artwork on the spur of the moment because the artist is in vogue at that time.
An extension of this philosophy is the incorporation of educational initiatives and research into the art, including creative visualisation workshops on the finer points of collecting, as well as specialist workshops for children, instilling a passion and interest in the arts from an early age. The dynamic exhibition space on Barakhamba Road will also play host to alternative art forms such as wall art, and cultural initiatives such as book launches and performances.
