The 6th India Art Fair just recently came to an end on February 2nd, and has brought the world together under one roof to showcase artwork from all different genres. India Art Fair is South Asia’s leading art fair for modern and contemporary art from across the world. The fair, held at the NSIC Exhibition Grounds in New Delhi, featured over 1000 artists spanning across three tents and 91 booths, ranging from paintings, sculptures, performance art, installations, and more. Among these artists were internationally-based artists from the US, France, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Israel, Pakistan, and China, among other nations.

The fair was lauded as a means for artists, both professional and up-and-coming, to come together for a common purpose: to expose the general Indian audience to artwork. Stating that the Indian art scene is very inaccessible due to exclusivity and small galleries, the 6th India Art Fair opened its doors to newer, less established artists alongside the big names in order to help both the artists and the general public, many of which had never seen “art” before, understand more about the international world of art.

As the show closed its doors, the fair organizers reported that a large number of exhibitors completely sold out, and 96% of artists at the even reported sales that exceeded their expectations. This positive experience for the artists, fair organizers, and the public is a very promising sign of things to come in the art world, not just in India, but on a global scale.
