Appreciating art that originates from another culture may feel intimidating.

But it does not have to be this way with a little nudge and keeping an open mind.

Artazzle is a young local-based brand paving the way as a platform to introduce art to a global audience.

In this case, Indian art.

Specialising in curating and distributing Indian art, Artazzle’s inaugural exhibition, “Indian Art Marvels: Celebrating Icons on Canvas” was held at ION Orchard.

Aimed to simplify art appreciation, the exhibition showcased the artistic prowess that was deeply rooted in India's rich heritage.

The artworks were complemented with a modern allure, making it easy to appreciate.
