Having very little experience with art in India, I was amazed with the Swasti art gallery. Not only did they provide me with a variety of art pieces, but the customer service was impeccable. Knowing that I have great pieces and that I help promote local talent and patients in need was what made me truly like Swasti.
Finding art works from famous international artists and senior contemporary artists under one roof was the best that could happen. I also love the concept of an open gallery. Buying an art piece supporting a cause is a good initiative and a wonderful way of using art as a medium to raise funds for cancer.
Buying art was never easy before – money transactions, delivery of the piece, authenticity certificate and all other procedures could not be achieved in one day. That’s till the Swasti art gallery came into the picture. With Swasti, all I had to do was like a painting, buy it, sign the documents and it would be delivered in 48 hours.
I am an art lover, but my busy schedule doesn’t allow me to visit art galleries. Swasti gallery is open 24/7. I can walk into the gallery anytime I want and give them a call the next day to reserve paintings I liked.
When buying a painting, there are 2 main things you look for: One is the artist and the second is the style of art. Now we have a third – that the piece should be a Swasti piece.
My first reason in making a purchase was to help a cancer patient in need. The fact that the piece I purchased was beautiful was a bonus.
I saw the art show opening reception in the newspaper. Being intrigued by their work and the pieces of art displayed, I decided to buy a piece to take back with me to the USA. The gallery has a great collection and I was happy to know that they are a non-profitable organisation with proceeds that were going towards a good cause.
I don’t normally visit galleries, but when I was visiting a friend at HCG Hospital, I passed the Swasti art space. Later I came back, looked around and even found a painting I liked in a budget that suited me. I had always thought art was unaffordable but Swasti gave me a pleasant surprise.
I had been looking for a set of paintings which were simple and classic for years. When I went through the images from the Swasti art gallery I found exactly what I wanted. They had a wide range of paintings that catered to a diverse audience.
The painting and its price both got my attention. But when I realised the money would go to the treatment of underprivileged cancer patients in India I didn’t think twice.
