About Abundant Art Gallery: We are an online art gallery based in London curating Indian contemporary painting, sculpture, print making and photography. Our portfolio has a cross section of styles including the Bengal school, Kalighat scroll painting, photorealism as well as more modern abstract work in a range of mediums like oil on canvas, acrylic and ink on paper, print media, bronze and mix media sculptures.

Our artists mostly belong to an artist’s guild based in India called CONTRIVANCE, established in 1979. Through our venture we aim to provide our artists a global platform. We organise art camps in India where our talented artists create their unique pieces of artworks. These can be viewed on www.abundantartgallery.com and are available for purchase. We also host our annual physical exhibition in selected art galleries and welcome collectors to visit us in our art studio in London for any f2f purchase. Visits are arranged by prior appointments by email info@abundantartgallery.com.

Our artists represent not only the unbroken heritage of Indian art dating back to Mughal miniatures but also show how India is responding to more global ideas in the post-modern sense. We see a more confident contemporary art in India today which is distinctively Indian yet at the same time embraces elements of global art trends.
