New Delhi: Delhi’s art-lovers have much to rejoice over as New Delhi’s oldest art-gallery, Gita Art Gallery, restarts its operations with an exhibition of exquisite art works by the country’s most sought-after young masters – among them the likes of Rameshwar Broota, Mona Rai, Manish Pushkale, Shobha Broota and Hem Raj, to name a few. But that’s not all. To mark the reinvention of Gita Art Gallery as ‘GAG Moderne’ the gallery’s octogenarian founder-owner, Mr Kuljit Singh Butalia, will bless Neha Talwar, who along with artists Anirudh Tripathi and Gopal Mehan has taken on the baton to embark on this creative journey as NEANGO STUDIO.
This is a significant development for Delhi’s art circuit as ‘GAG Moderne’ seeks to infuse the capital’s creative milieu with best-practices that are very dear to the founders of this initiative. The three installation artists’ trio – Neha Talwar, Anirudh Tripathi and Gopal Mehan – are all inspired by a common ideal of taking Indian art places, both literally and figuratively. NEANGO STUDIO intends to not just showcase the best of Indian art – both traditional and contemporary – through the platform of GAG Moderne, but also enshrine certain tenets that are core to respecting the artist.

ABOUT GAG Moderne
Formerly Gita Art Gallery, GAG Moderne, is a retailer and repository of umpteen contemporary paintings. Established in 1964 by Mr Kuljeet Singh Butalia, and, is indisputably the oldest art gallery in the Capital. Mr Butalia’s passion for art led him to not merely showcase but possess paintings of all kinds- be it abstract/semi-abstract form to or some combination of these elements. Having started his journey at a time when art flourished in the Asian region but perhaps, didn’t find as many lucrative deals as it does in the new millennium, he revolutionised the modern and contemporary art in India. Since then, for more than five decades, Gita Art Gallery has showcased some of the unique and finest exhibitions of modern and contemporary art in India building up a gateway of Indian art in the world market. It has constantly made a landmark success in promoting Indian art globally too.
After lying dormant for a few years, the gallery is getting reinvented by NEANGO STUDIO, keeping up with the latest trends of the art market to reach out to a wider audience of fine arts. Thus, from traditional and modern paintings, sculptures, installations to more contemporary media like mixed media, conceptual art, video art, and experimental art, the gallery – re-christened as GAG Moderne – is once again envisioned as an arena for all the passionate lovers of artworks of quality & everlasting value.
A collaborative endeavour to add to the fast emerging notions of creativity and aesthetics in the subcontinent, NEANGO STUDIO will primarily focus on some of the best known works of the young artists, besides having the spotlight on the masters of art from India who have earned an incomparable and matchless reputation across the world. They will also shortly be sharing their calendar of events for GAG MODERNE for the year with the press and the public. These are citations for the progressive art movement in New Delhi.
