At Artlinks, our endeavour is to help art enthusiasts and potential collectors to develop an aesthetic eye for the arts, understand the growing interest in art as a collectible and enable them to build and manage their art collections.
Edgar Degas, the famous french impressionist painter known for his enchanting ballerina paintings once said, “Art is not what you see, it is what you make others see”. Through our Art Appreciation workshops we aim to empower individuals with tools and techniques that will enable them to independently critique works of art, rely on their own judgement and establish their own tastes and preferences. The workshops will also educate art enthusiasts on understanding the roles of various stakeholders in the art market and how they function, learn about art as an alternate investment asset and guide potential collectors on getting started with the journey of collecting and caring for their art.
Our Art advisory division focuses on guiding collectors to build and look after their collections. We carefully curate artworks based on the clients requirements and based on our network of artists from all over India, we provide access to the most interesting and promising artists from the country.
