Art is universal. Whether you’re an expert in art or a novice trying to discern the link between two inter-woven silken threads in a portrait, we all appreciate good art. In India, however, though we value the sleepless nights that artists spend on their work, we often fail to recognize it. We only think of paintings when we think of interior decorations. And even then, we go specific like Buddha paintings or Ganesh paintings.
Since our Google instinct always tells us to look for paintings online, perhaps it made sense for founders Sankar Thakur and Sangeeta Choudhary to create an online gallery of paintings.
This is an online gallery of paintings from artists all over the world. It’s an open invitation to art collectors and random admirers alike. The goal of Gallerist is simple enough: to bring recognition to countless talented artists. If you’re an artist, you can fill out a form on their website and share your artwork with the world.
The online paintings gallery hosts a wide range of categories including paintings of deities like Buddha, Lord Ganesha, Radha-Krishna, and more. In addition, the gallery is also home to abstract, figurative, floral, wildlife, and landscape paintings.
The gallery currently holds over 3000 paintings created by 900 artists. According to the website, the team behind the gallery strives to make Gallerist the best place online to showcase and purchase world-class art.
