We are pleased to announce that The IMA Foundation will be bringing contemporary art from India to Cambridge Art Fair in September.
The IMA Foundation was established in 2008 with the intention of supporting emerging artists from the Indian sub-continent. Radha Binod Sharma, himself, an artist had studied at some of the leading establishments and had gone on to exhibit his work in the international arena.
In 2007, having settled in London, his attention turned to Indian art being represented in the global market. He observed the variation in talent and this led him to focus more closely on the art scene in India. In early 2008, he travelled back to his artistic roots in Santiniketan and Baroda to witness art emerging from these renowned establishments. The quality and the depth of the work he saw, along with a recognition of the difficulties facing artists in the early stage of their careers led to the creation of IMA Foundation.
As an artist his sensibility and experience recognized the talent stemming from India, but he also saw the struggle and difficulties artists were having in forging a strong and clear manifestation in the international arena.
