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”.

Architecture in the labyrinth of South Asian and  Southeast Asian culture. an article, by NANDINI BISWAS

Rapport in 1969 had stated that “The primary determinants of indigenous architecture of any  place are the culture and climate of that place.” The word culture derived from the Latin word  ‘colore’ which means to tend to the earth and mature, blend in and nurture. These are the same prerequisites we believe architecture in its entire existence should abide by and, as Frank O  Ghery had mentioned, “Architecture should speak of its time and place but yearn for timelessness”; this sheds much light on the para-importance of individuality and uniqueness of place and its impact on the people and culture.  – NANDINI BISWAS
