Vadehra Art Gallery
Vadehra Art Gallery was established in 1987 in New Delhi at a time when modern Indian art was still considered exotic and its access limited to a privileged few. The gallery was born out of a vision to build an institution dedicated to Indian art, and the need for a professional platform to connect artists with art lovers.
Vadehra Art Gallery stands today as one of the oldest and well-respected art galleries in India while representing a roster of artists that spans over four generations. Modern masters like MF Husain, Ram Kumar, SH Raza, Tyeb Mehta, and Akbar Padamsee, who were integral to the founding years of the gallery, find a prime spot in the gallery’s calendar alongside a subsequent generation of modernists like Arpita Singh, A Ramachandran, Gulammohammed Sheikh, Bhupen Khakhar, Rameshwar Broota, Paramjit Singh, Ganesh Pyne, Chameli Ramachandran, Anjolie Ela Menon, and Mrinalini Mukherjee. Vadehra’s contemporary program includes some of the biggest names in Indian art today such as of Atul Dodiya, Shilpa Gupta, Anju Dodiya, Nalini Malani, Ravinder Reddy, Atul Bhalla, Praneet Soi, Sumedh Rajendran, Hema Upadhyay, BV Suresh, and Jayashree Chakravarthy. Exciting younger contemporaries include Rakhi Peswani, Zakir Hussain, Susanta Mandal, Sujith SN, Gipin Varghese, and Paribartana Mohanty.
