Young lovers of art need not lose sleep over paucity of funds to buy their dream paintings. Now Ahmedabad based Marvel Art Gallery has come out with a unique EMI scheme to encourage young art buyers.
Most people don't associate youngsters with buying art. Thanks to the 'high price' factor. But it's a different story now. Never mind, if you are young and don't have the required funds to buy an artwork of your favourite artist. There's no need to lose sleep over it. Ahmedabad based Marvel Art Gallery has come out with an innovative idea of starting an EMI scheme for youngsters wanting to buy an artwork.
Talking about this scheme, Chaitya Dhanvi Shah, director Marvel Art Gallery says, "When I was in my last year of college, I wished to invest in a M F Husain serigraph and Harshil Patel's original painting but due to lack of funds to pay at once, I had to push back my dream of owning an artwork. I still remember how difficult it was for me to save and with what difficulty I invested in art at that time. At present, I still find many friends telling me that they like art but don't have money to invest in or don't earn much to able to invest in but they appreciate art and once they have enough balance they shall surely buy art. So I decided to start a scheme for youngsters. I want every young man or woman who loves art to be able to buy art.
There's no need to wait for enough fund and waste time instead now with the help of this scheme, one can immediately acquire the piece of art they admire and love."
Apart from one's love and appreciation, art is also seen as a good long term investment. Interestingly, one can enjoy art by displaying on walls instead of locking it in bank safe and transferring in demat accounts. "The EMI period is for 25 months and there's no interest on EMI, no file charges or processing charges. The painting is available at actual cost," adds Shah.
Young Kinjal Doshi who's now a proud owner of M F Husain's serigraph says, "I could not have been more happier than to have Husainsaab's serigraph on the walls of my home. This EMI basis makes buying works of art known/unknown/young artists affordable for youngsters wanting to revel in the beauty of art. The EMI scheme took me a step closer to my dream of owning an artwork at a young age."
Agrees Charmi Doshi who has recently availed the EMI scheme, "It is a great encouraging scheme. Now, I need not wait for long to own an artwork."
