Moreover, the Auction will also feature Serigraphs and Lithographs of eminent artists and other unique lots including sculptures, coffee tables, chairs and other collectors’ items.

“Art Auctions are a significant part of the art world, in art capitals around the world. Committed art patrons visit these cities regularly to collect sought-after artworks of celebrated artists. Bangalore, on the other hand, is slowly but surely making its mark in the global art market and the Art Auction, being organized as a part of ‘Art Bengaluru 2012′, aims to bring together such art patrons and buyers from across the country,” said Uzma Irfan, conceptualiser & organiser, ‘Art Bengaluru 2012′ & executive director, Prestige Group.

Moreover, the art auction is in aid of Christel House India, an NGO for the empowerment and education of underprivileged children.

Art Bengaluru is an exclusive event that is designed to showcase various types of art forms including ‘Wall Art’ (fine art, paintings, illustrations, photographs) and ‘Stand-alone Art’ (sculpture, installations, product design).
