The Artfloor Community

The Art Floor is an integrated art organisation- A community-based art space that connects communities using art and artists. The co-founder Jas Kaur was visibly happy greeting the guests at the show and describing the journey of the company and their learnings during the pandemic. “Art is for all, and art pieces done by self are most treasured. They don’t need to be perfect at all times. We kept in touch with art lovers and the community during the lockdown through our DIY online programmes. Artjams at Cyberhub and in various malls connect youngsters and children to themselves through art. And all of these art corners created by us give us immense gratification,” she shares.

Dashmeet, aka Dash, is an ex-investment banker turned a creative entrepreneur, an international contemporary artist & art curator of repute who loves to innovate through various paint mediums and takes pride in ‘identifying jewels in the field of art’ as he shares. A creative influencer, poet, renowned artist, gallerist, and mentor for new artists, he is passionate about promoting all art forms. Dashmmet greatly believes in the power of manifestation, and the idea must come alive in your head and heart first to unfold as real. Through art, he desires to create a sustainable environment and not just promote good artists across the country but also preserve art. The SKC Foundation recently awarded him the Agent Of Change award for his contributions to transforming people’s lives through his programmes.

“As a budding artist, I was timid and lacked confidence. Then gradually, my paintings started to do well in galleries. My paintings got sold in the Hungarian embassy, and my artworks displayed in the prime minister’s media lounge during a UN programme got things rolling. So I understand the dilemma of new artists,” says Dash.

An influential art community that the company nurtured saw a new dimension of online art during the days of the pandemic. “We got innovative and created a DIY kit-Khushiyoon Ki Rangoli during the Diwali time and sent the kits beforehand to who’s who not just of Delhi & NCR but across many cities in the country. The Rangoli kit sent to our art enthusiasts and influencers was comprehensive. Expert Rangoli artists associated with The Art Floor reached hundreds of households teaching Rangoli, spreading colour and light to homes through the online medium. The sky is the limit if one goes hybrid,” says Dashmeet.
