Akara Art is located in a picturesque by-lane of Colaba, just a stone's throw away from the vibrant promenade of the Gateway of India. Housed within the old-world charm of a 92 year old heritage colonial building, its interiors provide the perfect setting to showcase Art. Natural light and airy rooms offer a sense of space and this allows one to see how artworks can be displayed in one's home.

Founder, Puneet Shah, established Akara Art in 2009. He is a well known art dealer and consultant, recognized in the art industry for his accurate eye for the aesthetic. For him, a gallery program was the perfect platform to expand and express-his artistic viewpoints and ideas with a conscious effort to include a larger spectrum of artists. His objective is to have diversity in the program by showing Indian Modern and Contemporary artists. He also wants to broaden the spectrum to include contemporary artists of international acclaim. The main objective of the gallery is to show quality works which are fresh to the market.
