Are you on the lookout for artists whose work is exceptional but still under recognised? Akara Art has put together exhibitions that should be on your radar. Time to stock up on art that will prove to be a great investment.

The Indian art scene has seen an awakening, especially amongst younger art collectors, and curators are taking notice. If you are one of them and you are looking for the works of exceptional but not-so-well-known artists, we have the perfect thing for you.

Join Akara Art's director, Puneet Shah, for a walkthrough of the exhibition Whittled Spaces in Colaba, Mumbai tomorrow at 6:30pm. The exhibition traces the development of Piraji Sagara from the mid-'50s to the early-'90s. Offering insights into a unique facet of post-Independence Indian abstraction, the carved wooden panels on display present a series of almost sculptural works that demonstrate the slow shaping of Sagara’s artistic integrity, the maturing of his skill, and the vibrancy of his themes.

Kashmir series - Oil on Burnt Wood - Piraji Sagara

Having been exhibited widely in the '50s - '70s alongside other major progressive artists, Sagara had a stroke in the early '80's after which he focussed on teaching at CEPT University in Ahmedabad. He had his last show in Mumbai at Chemould Gallery, in 1984.

As a rediscovery of Sagara's works, this exhibition is a must visit.
