Why we’ve changed.
We care greatly for art. That's why, to make deeper and impactful forays into the art world, we have streamlined ourselves into a much sleeker and comprehensive unit—South Asian Art Gallery. Still rooted in the same values, but with renewed vigor, we continue in our pursuit to create a successful ecosystem within the art fraternity. South Asian Art Gallery (SAAG) is an open canvas where different artists, art enthusiasts, and communities come together and share a common love for art. We are a global society that acknowledges, shares and appreciates art that comes from a versatile and multi-cultural heritage.

What we’re about:
We are united by art, connected by culture and inspired by humanity.
At South Asian Art Gallery, we believe art holds the power to inspire a sense of affinity.
