One could say that art is youthfulness since it rejuvenates and makes one see the world afresh. It does so by presenting multiple viewpoints in a manner that is both intellectually and visually stimulating. The freedom of thought and expression that art allows draws many to take it up art as a way of life. However, art also needs nurturing. This need to sustain and encourage artists is at the heart of Piramal Art Residency’s vision.

The Piramal Art Residency in Thane is a vibrant space where artists work and create art in a spirit of sharing and exchange. At this fully sponsored residency, talented artists from all over the country are selected and given the opportunity to work single-mindedly for a period of three weeks to realise their vision. For artists, the ability to work in an artistically invigorating environment acts as a catalyst resulting in works that are novel and challenging. The works featured in this exhibition, created at the Piramal Art Residency, stand testimony to this. Dwelling on themes that are as varied as colour, craft, portraiture and the idea of time, these works explore different modes of expression and media. Not only are the works diverse but the artists too, belonging as they do to different regions, backgrounds and age groups. However, the common factor connecting them is their sincerity of pursuit and their keen desire to see the world with new insight. Explore the artworks and take the time to unravel the message and you will see the world with a very different perspective.
