The Other Side Of Art
ACCESSED Hidden Treasures is almost like a mobile platform on the hunt for talent. What sets it apart is the fact that it doesn’t narrow its search within one genre. In the past, the realm of bakers, fashion designers, youth ventures have been explored. This time, for its sixth edition, artists are the focus.
A group of these creators will showcase pieces from their oeuvre at Café Zoe, Mumbai from May 17-21, 2014 (Cafe Zoe will be shut on May 19). Entry is free.

"Art serves as a memory or expression of one standing outside of the self; a vital source of difference in this singular world that needs to be cherished."
"Art is an inseparable part of my life. Painting is my method of meditation and concentration where I discover myself. It is my way of expressing myself and the happiness around me. It is a spiritual journey...."
Vasudha Dhuv Gupta, 25
"Art to me is freedom to express my thoughts and vent my emotions. It is a medium with which I connect to God by creating something inspired by His creations."
Nandini Mehta, 32
"Art to me is anything beautiful that's been created; it doesn't always have to mean something, it can simply be a beautiful watercolour of a vase of flowers. Everything around is an expression of art. Art sets your mind and soul free.
To quote Oscar Wilde, ' The secret of life is in art.'"
Anushi Patel, 24
"Art allows me to make my thoughts visible to the human eye. I find myself trying to communicate two distinct ideas: our perception of our selves and our egos; and recreating memories of certain places that feel familiar but are not of this world."
