StoryLTD, the sister site of India’s leading online auction house Saffronart, will be holding an online auction of Contemporary Indian art on November 4 – 5, 2014. The auction will feature 81 works spanning paintings, photographs and sculptures, by India’s leading contemporary artists. Contemporary artworks are also available for sale on StoryLTD’s ecommerce platform: https://www.storyltd.com/categories/art/contemporary-art/.
The market for contemporary Indian art continues to grow, with demands for works by artists such as Sudharsan Shetty, N. S. Harsha, Bose Krishnamachari, Ranbir Kaleka, Jagannath Panda, Jayashree Chakravarty, Anjum Singh and other pioneering artists rising steadily. Impacted by issues ranging from the impact of socio-political issues on the common man, to globalisation, their works are a significant and crucial commentary on the issues facing us today.
Among the highlights of the auction are Arunkumar H. G.’s “Nandi” (2006), N. S. Harsha’s “Quiz Book”, a 2006 sculpture of an acrobat by G. R. Iranna, and Ranbir Kaleka’s “Cobbler” (2002). Having specialised in sculpture, Arunkumar often uses readymades, such as “Nandi”, to comment on society through layered meaning. N. S. Harsha’s “Quiz Book” is a look into the hardship, longings and anticipations of children from rural India and the idea of education for their betterment. G. R. Iranna’s sculptures negotiate his rural and urban experiences, as he relates one to the other. Kaleka’s works carry a hint of theatricality in them; his subjects are often ordinary folks interspersed among surreal settings, as seen in “Cobbler”.
By including these artists on its platform, StoryLTD hopes to encourage bidders looking for meaningful art at attractive prices. There will be no minimum price on any of the lots, and bidders can purchase these works at very reasonable prices. Bidding begins on November 4, IST 8:00 p.m. on http://www.storyltd.com, and begins at just Rs. 1,500.
