Initiatives

Started with a vision of ‘Art for all’, Marvel has introduced many initiatives to convert this vision into reality. The perception that art is for a select few had to be changed by taking dramatic measures, which ensure that art ownership is within the reach of many. These initiatives are aimed at making art financing easy and providing buyers a guarantee of secondary markets for their art purchase.

#BirthdayArt: Collect memories!

Birthdays are special! Everyone wants their birthday to be unique and extraordinary. What do we do on our birthdays? Generally, we make it memorable by hanging out with friends or families for movies, food, party, shopping and more, in a way celebrating it with all kind of happiness that one can think of. In our busy lives, most of them do not have time to think over unique ideas to celebrate and make their own birthday memorable. Well, what if we offer you something exclusive that you can cherish on your each birthday?


We understand the significance of making each birthday uniquely unforgettable and for the same we introduce an exclusive initiative by Marvel Art Gallery as ‘#BirthdayArt: Collect memories! whereby we offer special consideration of 20% on all artworks which includes all artists and mediums that you purchase from Marvel. And yes, this is not a limited period offer.


Collecting art on your birthday is celebration of life in different way. Buying art on your birthday doesn’t necessarily mean spending lots of money or buying any celebrated artist to rejoice it or have a memory of your birthday. It can be something as simple as a cute little artwork that matches your cultural taste. It should enhance your life and your mind and it is the process of collecting art that becomes memorable!


With this initiative we wish to make it a tradition amongst the people to appreciate art by collecting Art. This #BirthdayArt stays with you for lifetime - moments behind the artwork and the story the art conveys which connects your life. Hence, gradually you can collect your favourite artwork and with that you can have an impressive collection that you and others can be proud of. Marvel has been part of several family walls and collection since a decade now and we wish to be part of your personal life forever.


There are no particular terms and conditions but a little note of transparency is always better.

  • Age: As they say there is no age in collecting good art. We would encourage collecting art starting from the new born babies to adults.
  • Valid ID card or birth certificate.
  • In certain case, a person can gift to her/his children, spouse, and parents but in that case the name of the invoice will be of the person who is celebrating his or her birthday.

ART for YOUTH

“Back days, while I was still in college, I had wished to invest in a Husain serigraph and A emerging artist’s original painting. However, due to lack of fund to pay at once and investment, I had to push back my dream. And it was only after one year that I was able to buy and fulfill my dream to own a superb artwork in my room. I still remember how difficult it was for me to save that money and with so much difficulty. Time has still not changed. At present , with my survey I find many friends telling me that they like art but don’t have money to invest in or don’t earn much to able to invest in but they appreciate art and once they have enough balance they would surely buy art. So, I decided to turn out a scheme for youth. I want every young man or woman who loves art - should afford art. Not waiting for enough fund and wasting time instead immediately acquire the piece of art they admire and love the most.” - Chaitya Dhanvi Shah, Curator and Managing Director, Marvel Art Gallery


Anyone, irrespective of any profession or age group (above 18 years) can buy our artworks of famous artists from our art gallery.

Why invest in art
  • Appreciation of art

VAT is payable as down payment along with first installment at the time of purchase. If a painting is of 25,000, 15% VAT comes to 28,750, then buyer has to pay 4,750 [1,000 ( first installment) + 3,750 (15% VAT)] at the time of purchase.

No interest on EMI, no file charges or processing charges, you can buy a painting at actual cost.

The Art Exchange

Started with a vision of ‘Art for all’, Marvel has introduced many initiatives to convert this vision into reality. The perception that art is for a select few had to be changed by taking dramatic measures, which ensure that art ownership is within the reach of many. These initiatives are aimed at making art financing easy and providing buyers a guarantee of secondary markets for their art purchase.

What is ‘THE ART EXCHANGE’ all about?

We surveyed about 100 people who are associated with the art market, coming from different backgrounds, different professions, different age groups and experiences. These people were asked – “Why people show less interest in buying art?” And we happened to find out two very common and interesting answers, which are:

  • Art is Expensive (So, we initiated with the scheme called ‘Art for Youth’ which gives art to young art lovers on a genuine EMI scheme)
  • Lack of resale market for artworks

What is ‘THE ART EXCHANGE SHOW’?

After evaluating the results, we reached to a conclusion that we should start an event to promote the resale of artworks. For putting up the show every year, we have worked on various aspects to successfully launch this show:

  • The place to sell your artworks
  • A service to help you sell the former artworks and buy new artworks
  • It is just like stock exchange, where a buyer can do trading of stocks, bonds and other securities with other stock brokers and traders.
  • It will certainly be a first-of-its-kind initiative in the India or elsewhere. This will help in creating curiosity among art lovers and also bring in together the buyers where they can share their interests in other collectors’ artworks.
  • The whole idea is to create a secondary market. A market for buying and selling. Not waiting for years to sell or go to auctions. As the years will progress, this event will gain more popularity as it will help selling and gain liquidity much faster.
  • At times it happens when – the buyer is left out with its former artwork, even when he would like to buy a new art piece in the exchange of the artwork cherished by him over years. And, he may not be able to do so in the lack of funds, knowledge or market. This platform can be a boon for him who is intending to buy a new artwork.
  • This will help in creating awareness of art amongst people.
