About Abundant Art:

Abundant Art is focused on delivering art and cultural heritage projects in addition to running an art zine. Our art and culture heritage projects aim to rediscover and preserve artistic heritage which is at risk and reconnect people with lost or forgotten heritage. Our projects aim to transform heritage into a living experience through active participation of the members of the community, particularly our younger generation. We strive to make artistic heritage accessible and relevant to people in the most suitable way. We continue to bring a thriving multi-faceted cultural and entertainment scene to our audience through our e-mag. In a short space of 3 years+ we have delivered culturally significant work and also opened up previously unavailable opportunities to learn and create for young people.

About Abundant Art Gallery (www.abundantartgallery.com)

Abundant Art gallery is an online curated art gallery focusing on promoting contemporary art. We produce original artworks (paintings and sculptures) through art camps and promote them through our online gallery to collectors and art lovers. We also curate physical exhibitions.

Through our social media channels, we look at bringing fine artists from all styles to share their work and initiate discussions about the art world collectively.

We aim to focus on artists from diverse communities, backgrounds, and demographics to create new opportunities. We identify, inspire and support them with required resources to produce artworks. We have a unique model where following selections we commission the artworks through art camps organised by Abundant Art.

The gallery had started off with Indian Art working across borders creating a link between Indian artists and international audience. Our strategy was to focus on one area to begin with as a learning pad. We now have a planned strategy to extend to the UK artist base.
