The platform works in collaboration with their cultural partners – Artbuzz Studio, Ravi Engineering Works (a leading manufacturer of printmaking products) and Parkshala, an NGO based in Noida.

Shivangi Ladha co-founder says

The biggest challenge with pursuing printmaking in India is the lack of opportunities, studio spaces and lack of people’s interest in collecting prints. Printmaking is considered a dying art and I wanted to bring a change in the India Art Scene. After bouncing ideas for several months and promising that would start out on own, we settled on India Printmaker House, keeping in mind that growth should not just be an individual, but a collective growth of society.

Such platforms will assist in establishing a new foundation for all printmakers in India. It will develop and foster an environment where individuals will create works far beyond the measures of the limited potential of our minds.

Akshay Agrawal, co-founder IPMH,  believes that he is not looking to change the world but to add to the society by giving young artists a standing and a voice in this overly competitive and globalized world”.
