Dear Friends,

I have been not updating this blog for a long time.

The reason is that I have been busy doing my core job which is running hotels for The Oberoi Group and that left little time for me to indulge in my passion of writing about Indian art.

Also, the fact that just writing a blog about art news was not enough to contribute comprehensively to the art world, I needed to do much more.

Not much has changed over the last few months, except the fact that the Indian art market continues to grind lower with every passing day !

As the speculative buzz dies down in the Indian art space, we need to rebuild this space. The art collecting frenzy is now dead and actually it is a great time to start collecting art as values are still reasonable.

How do you build a culture of collecting and appreciating when Indian art does not even have basic news coverage. Most of the art magazines come out only once in 4 months, so the show in summer is being reviewed in the autumn !

With the private museums of Anupam Poddar and Kiran Nadar setting the tone for a larger non institutional support for the Arts, The Wall is a humble attempt to present art news without the jargon and bring in transparency for further growth of the Indian art space.

The Wall comes to you EVERY month on the 1st day of the month and also will always be FREE !

Enjoy being on The Wall or just download it and share with your friends. 50 pages of art news,lifestyle and some also good hotels to enjoy the art life.

The Ipad version of The Wall and even the blackberry version will be out soon and will enable to you read the magazine, anytime, anywhere !

As you read The Wall, do not forget to click the tab of "Back Issues " to read all the previous 5 issues.

Also, whenever there is a show that we like going to, watch it on The Wall Art TV, now you don't need to be in the city to watch all the at shows and openings, The Wall Art TV gets it closer to you within 24 hours of the show opening !

Missed being at Art Basel and Documenta in Kassel, no problem, read all about them with extra images only at, we are bringing the art world closer !
