Sahil Desai’s decade old enterprise - the sale of imported oil reproductions of masterpieces – is going strong, but original paintings, especially those by upcoming artists, are quickly gaining favour with those who love art but cannot afford to take home a master.
Masters Collection Art Gallery has launched its show titled “New Horizon” for the emerging Indian artists. Most of the artists displayed in the show are comparatively new and haven’t had too much public exposure like Parag Adhikary , Dilip Choudhury ,to name a few.
Investments in paintings today is second only to stocks, said Desai. “Upcoming artists are more in demand because buyers seem to enjoy the gamble. The prices of works grow manifold a s artists gain fame.”
