Art has become increasingly important to us, whether through culinary experiences, fashion or colourful graffiti and murals splashed on walls. Easel Stories began its journey by locating inspiration in corners of cities across the world.
Founded in 2015 with the objective of taking talent deprived of opportunities to the world, Easel Stories connects emerging artists with audiences. We foster their creativity and make their artworks available to collectors, patrons, and art enthusiasts who, like us, love experimenting and adding diversity to their art collections.
Join us as we support and encourage artists with exceptional artistic skills and vision from India and around the world.
Through multiple initiatives, we bring new collectors, artists, and art enthusiasts together to enjoy contemporary art in its fullest sense. We envision taking this initiative beyond showcases and exhibitions. Below mentioned are a few such initiatives by Easel Stories:
- Artist Residency Program, where master artists create art live while interacting with the audience by explaining their work, techniques, and the stories behind their canvases.
- Commission Your Piece service allows our patrons to commission works of art by collaborating with an artist to suit their aesthetic preferences.
- View-At-Home service allows our collectors to view the artwork at home before buying it.
Photographer & Founder Easel Stories
Tarunima picked up her camera to compensate for her skills in creating portraits. Her journey has taken her through various life stages, including being a researcher, a social worker, a homemaker, and a mother. Her camera always accompanied her through all of this.
Through her photographs, she attempts to leave behind a narrative, capturing the truth of the person or the essence of their existence, each photograph tempting the viewer to find out more about the subject.
During the course of her photography career, she has worked on many different types of projects and subjects, but her passion has always been capturing nuances in daily life. This makes the parallel projects which she has been working on for the last three years very close to her heart, one depicting "Hands of Work" and the other "The Making of Durga Puja.", well worth her time.
