The objective of this project is to revive a culture where artists and important individuals from different spheres of society come together and create a positive wave to make an art-conscious society.

Art is not just a reflection of society; it also plays a major role in its architecture. ‘Portrait of the Spirited’ is a project that is conceived to raise the awareness of art consciousness by bringing art, artists and society closer. Self portraits and portraits have been the subject of interest to the artists since centuries. Portraits not only bring out the essence of a person, they also freeze the moment for an eternity immortalising a person.

‘Portrait of the Spirited’ will commemorate celebrated change makers, thought leaders and influencers from the society who have positively contributed and impacted the very fabric of our society.

The Event

The live event caters to a wide spectrum of audience from the society. It will be attended by influencers, art critics, collectors, artists, key personalities, students, parents and educators and professionals from various fields. The session will be extensively promoted through digital and print media to reach a larger audience.
