Being relevant with the change is important but at the same time it is the well rooted cultural values, which bind together countries, societies and people. Art is a medium to maintain the knowledge base. Loosing our Art forms and Art works would mean loosing historical information and also not having any reference material for the upcoming generations to refer to. I feel the same way for Indian miniature Art, with that impulsive idea, at Maukaa, I want to create an open space for dialogue between now and then. My aim is to make the Art form easily accessible and popular to the world.
