Art Rises for Kerala (ARK), state's first live fundraiser art auction scheduled on January 18 at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale here, will raise funds for the ongoing flood relief works in the southern state, the organisers, Saffronart, said.
Other top artists who have donated works for the auction include Atul Dodiya, Anju Dodiya, G.R. Iranna, Gigi Scaria, Sudhir Patwardhan and Vivan Sundaram. The auction also features two rare drawings by coveted artist Amrita Sher-Gil.
The sale will have no Buyer's Premium, and its proceeds will be donated to the Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund.
Several parts of Kerala were ravaged by devastating floods in 2018, prompting many art and cultural organisations to raise funds for rescue and rebuilding efforts.
"Through this auction, we reiterate our solidarity with the resilient people of this beautiful state," Saffronart CEO Dinesh Vazirani said, adding that they are counting on the generous support of art collectors across the world.
