Art Mandai started with the intention of bringing Art to Public.
Every 26th January, on Republic day, the artists meet at Mahatma Jyotiba phule Mandai, the iconic market of Pune. Starting with Jhanda vandan/Flag hoisting at Tilak Putla, artists set up their art stalls, sitting among the vegetable vendors in mandai/market). The event being only for four hours, artists wrap-up their works by 1 pm.
We believe that one connects with art as one owns it. As art is expensive, the Art Mandai artists, specially create work to be sold at very very reasonable price, not more that Rs 1000/-.
The 50% of the sale proceeds go for a cause.
The purpose of Art is to give joy. We strive to get people connected to Art.
