Gallery/Dealer Details - Art Chamber/ Galeria de Belas Artes
www.goa-art.com has been promoted by Art Chamber, Galeria de Bellas Artes, primarily for the exposure of Goan art and artists through the Internet.
Goa is a small state at the West coast of India but gained significance by its very peculiar history, thus producing a unique cultural blend between East and West. Goa has both : the Indian way of life with a flavour of the European grandeur.
In times gone by the aspiring Goan artists had to leave this inspiring land for greener pastures elsewhere. Names like F. N. Sousa, Laxman Pai, Prafula Dhanukar, Mario Miranda immediately come to mind as some of those who carved a niche for themselves and are household names in the art scene of modern Indian paintings.
Art awareness in Goa has grown tremendously since; much credit for this should go for the Art College, set up some 25 years ago. Relatively new therefore in this big competitive world of survival of the fittest, the young Goan artist has come up trumps with significant works.
Goa today is slowly but surely emerging as a busy art centre - attracting both, the artist and the art connoisseur from anywhere in the world.
This site is not only intended to be an on-line Gallery, but an instrument of art education and communication in its wider sense and will be featuring also articles on art and artists.
