On each artist’s gallery page, you will find up to ten original works of art, biographical information, a text description of each artwork, and a few links to additional web resources (when available). This is by no means an exhaustive writeup of the artist’s oeuvre; rather, it is a selection of their best and most recent work, representative of the artist and their vision. If you have questions about the artworks or would like to inquire about prices, please contact us. We will be in touch within 24 hours.

We have big goals for the future. We are committed to:

  • Locating unrepresented artists across India and giving them space on our digital platform

  • Creating and supporting sustainable livelihoods for artists in their chosen art form

  • Connecting artists with advocates, mentors, patrons, and exhibition opportunities

  • Securing funds and resources to support artistic development

In the coming weeks, we are focusing on growing our network of artists and supporters, expanding our reach to more international art lovers via social media, building connections with arts and disability organizations, and planning for a launch event in early 2018. We are constantly reevaluating our approach and growing by the day, eager to learn from and engage with people with disabilities and their allies.
