A Taste of Art - The Master Collection by People For Animals

Paintings need not always be on the wall or even on canvas and paper. They can be part of what you use every day. You can have your own unique collection of art without having to pay crores for one painting.
In fact , PFA sees no reason why art should be confined to canvas, and limited to museums or the homes and offices of the super rich. Art should be accessible , affordable and enjoyable. Every year, therefore, People For Animals introduces a new and exciting art concept. For people who like surrounding themselves with Razas and Souzas and Raja Ravi Varmas , People For Animals presents a limited edition of the finest porcelain mugs.
If last year, People For Animals splashed art onto carpets, this year it has innovated another art collectible: a collection of masterpieces by all time greats, both past and present, of Indian art rendered onto the finest porcelain gold and silver rimmed mugs.
The Master Collection features works by 50 top artists ranging from masters from the past, Raja Ravi Varma, Jamini Roy , F.N. Souza and Ramkinkar Baij to living legends like Raza, Sabavala, Arpita Singh, Paramjit Singh, Vaikuntam, Paresh Maity, Nayanaa Kanodia, Farhad Hussain, Binoy Varghese, G.R.Iranna, and Bose Krishnamachari.
Each design is produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces only. Each is offered in its own luxurious box in an elegant assortment of shapes and sizes at just Rs. 500/- each.
Invented around 10,000 BC when a handle was first stuck on a cup, mugs have progressed from being simply beverage containers to ubiquitous often decorative desktop items. Here , for the first time, the mug has been dramatically elevated to an object d’art and moved from the kitchen and desk to the formal drawing and dining area.
With its audacious juxtaposition of serious art with an everyday household item, The Master Collection pushes the boundaries, creating a whole new segment of collectible art. Art ventures out of the museum and enters the home to become a part of life and living.
Like all PFA offerings, the affordability of the collection ensures that it may be acquired and enjoyed by all those with a taste for stylish homes and lifestyles. A first of its kind, The Master Collection is a distinctive offering for consumers and connoisseurs alike.
Our Master Collection mugs combine artistic and intrinsic value. Each design is offered in a range of differently contoured mugs to add variety and versatility to this unique 10,000 mug collection. Elegantly combined into beautifully packed sets or individually available, there are mugs to complement every style .Be they in the kitchen or on a desk , these extravagantly elegant creations light up the home and are a tribute to tasteful living.
Says originator of the concept, PFA Chairperson , Maneka Gandhi, “ There is no reason why art should be confined to canvas, or limited to a few. Every year, PFA introduces a new and wonderful way to enjoy art. Last year our carpets with art woven on them simply flew off the walls at sell out shows in Delhi and Mumbai. I expect the same with our mugs. PFA is grateful for the continuing support of India’s artists, and to this year’s sponsors for pitching in to help India’s animals. “
Says artist Manu Parekh, “I have been with PFA since its inception and continue to be amazed at the creativity and class of its annual fundraisers. It is a privilege to be part of The Master Collection.”
The Master Collection will be launched on 19th August 2011 at a glittering cocktail party at Delhi's luxury hotel, The Lalit , where the exhibition will continue over the next two days. As with previous PFA events, the exhibition is expected to attract a significant turnout of the city's elite including diplomats, business leaders, young entrepreneurs and executives as well as India 's growing fraternity of art patrons. Event proceeds will go towards building an animal shelter in Mysore and in Ghaziabad .
The collection has been curated by Garima Jain's Transmedia in collaboration with Delhi Art Gallery. Photographs have been shot by Manish Manchanda.
