In the words of artist Ms. Sonali Chaudhari : My Paintings depict the strength and beauty of the feminine spirit in some way or the other. As a woman, I believe in overcoming all obstacles & triumphing over all adversity in the journey of life. My artworks highlight the transform- ation of women from bondage to freedom, from darkness to light & from the depths of despair to the pinnacle of bliss. Emerging in all her strength and beauty, the feminine spirit within my heart moves forward to embrace life anew. It is this journey that is highlighted in my artworks.
Nero Art HUB : Art through times has always been limited to be assessed or analysed by a particular class of people. With the term itself comes a heavy preconceived division. Art means expression, which exists for all. Nero Art hub is a fine art gallery located in New Delhi. As a fine art gallery we strive to collect, preserve, sell and exhibit the various affordable art forms. Neroarthub.com is also an online market place that buys and sells affordable original art.
About the Director of Nero Art Hub ( Ms. Ranbir Rathi) having been in the security Industry for more than 8 years of her life managing her own company in a male dominated environment, there started to creep in a lack of being present, but more importantly being happy. She took a decision to groom herself as an individual all the years traveling and exploring world art galleries and the upcoming included the innumerable lessons, she taught herself. It wasn't an overnight journey the magic potion consisted of innumerable risks and enormous amount of courage. Having studied design and ventured into creating art early on, it was as if something dormant had been woken up. She saw the pieces fall into the picture perfectly and it did not take her long to figure out the motivation behind nero. To participate in the Mumbai art fair 2018 was a very good start and nero art collection was appreciated by Art lovers.
