Said¬†Harindra Singh, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Percept Limited, ‚ÄúThe contemporary Indian Art Market is valued at $ 400 Million which represents just 1% of the $ 40 Billion International Art Market. The growing interest in Art is further corroborated by the statistics that there were over 70,000 visitors at the Indian Art¬†Summit¬†held recently in¬†Delhiand the fact that the Indian Art auction market now stands at $ 150 Million, a phenomenal rise from $ 52 Million transacted in the previous year. The ET Art Index in partnership with Osian further reinstated confidence in Art investors by validating that in the previous year the Art Index only slipped 8% in a period of 6 months in sharp contrast to Equities which fell nearly 40% within that same period, and that investors were flocking to both Masters as well as Amateur artists. All these facts only prove that there is tremendous untapped potential for the contemporary Indian Art market and substantiate our belief and conviction in launching our new business venture ‚ÄėPercept¬†Art‚Äô.‚ÄĚ

With this giant leap,¬†Percept¬†Art is all set torevolutionize the way Art will be perceived in¬†India¬†and across the globe.

A holistic 360-degree model covering all aspects of exposure possible will be employed for the Artist including Exhibitions, Roadshows, Art Tours and a diverse array of innovative Marketing & Promotional Campaigns across the world.
Commented¬†Shailendra Singh, Joint Managing Director, Percept Limited, ‚ÄúIn India and overseas Art is an institution in itself and¬†Percept¬†Art understands that and sees a lot of untapped potential that needs to be explored to enhance the business of art across the country and the globe.

The first Artist to be promoted under this wing is Ajay Gulati who spent years understanding¬†the¬†¬†physical world around him which included exhaustive studies and observations through isometric and perspective drawings which helped him to explore the third dimension on a two dimensional surface.¬†Percept¬†Art has designed an avant-garde promotional campaign to exhibit his collection through a World Tour that will exhibit his works in¬†London,¬†Munich,Zurich,¬†Abu Dhabi,¬†Dubai¬†and¬†Cape Town.
Said¬†Ajay Gulati, ‚ÄúThe essential purpose of great art, design and architecture is that while it promises to bring solace to the mind body experience, and so does it set the spirit free to fulfill its highest purpose.¬†Percept¬†understands the vision of an artist and I was greatly moved by their sense of purpose, conviction and belief in my work. I have full faith that together we will bring spark to spark and ignite a flame of higher consciousness through the medium of art and creative expression.‚ÄĚ
