Welcome to Art Scene India! 

I'm Nalini Malaviya, a Bangalore based art consultant, curator and writer. I founded Art Scene India in 2006 as a blog to share information on art and to reach out to audiences across the world. Over time, the blog has emerged as a leading voice on Indian contemporary art, featuring upcoming shows, reviews of ongoing exhibitions, interviews with artists, and practical information on collecting art.

Additionally, it has evolved into a resource site with several guides and tips for artists to help them organize exhibitions, write an artist statement, create an online presence and other relevant material, useful in navigating the art world. The idea is to support both art connoisseurs and artists simultaneously through a single platform and bridge the gap between them as much as possible.

If you have any questions, need help with a specific topic or would like to work with me, please drop me a mail on artsceneinfo(at)gmail.com
