Buddha art gallery is an attempt to address the paradigmatic shifts in the forms of aesthetic fabulation within the country. Our attempt will be to exhibit art that attempts to connect with the contemporary with a greater feel for differences, foregrounding practices that try to engage with traditions of dissent and active reformulations that redraw the parameters of the possible. In this, we will try to question and interrogate present day hierarchies and preferences, and to provide alternatives that are rooted in the micro-politics of the region. We will also actively try to ensure the participation of artists from varied sections of people, and to highlight art that is contemplative as well as cutting- edge. The gallery will also try to provide space for various programs related to art with a view to strengthen the discourses of and around art within the country.

Remembering a place even years later - being sorry I didn't purchase specific art work - isn't that a good sign? I discovered this gallery in a quite touristy place and was pleasantly surprised by its genuine taste. Please go there if you want to be moved by what local artists do but please make sure to keep the spirit... More

Whilst the art on display is okay, it will not take more than 10 minutes to view. Some of the art is interesting, and I enjoyed seeing the modern watercolours. However, there is no word of explanation, leaving the viewer confused and distressed. From precious reviews it seems staff on hand were helpful. Staff were not there on our visit,... More

The art is of high quality with a social and environmental comment. The Buddha Gallery is relatively new and already is attracting interest from... More

My visit to Buddha Gallery was a very positive experience. The selection of artworks shown at the exhibition was a good mixture of interesting cutting edge contemporary art. Art that speaks to you! Furthermore the artwork on display was enhanced by the bright decorated gallery and its cozy atmosphere. I highly recommend a visit to the gallery for art lovers!
