India Today Art Awards 2017


Art is no longer a beautiful piece on your wall at home of office; it is also about investing and is also the business of art.

The last few years have seen an emergence of a new set of artists who have been experimenting with a whole gamut of material.

Keeping this dynamic art scenario in mind, we have instituted the India Today Art Awards, which seek to encourage and showcase the best of Contemporary Indian Art and embrace all aspects of the Indian Art Market.
