Big Idea

An artsy affair

Now you can pick and choose works of art by a wide range of designers and artists across India with the World Art Community

In the hope of creating a marketplace for artists and designers, Shobhit Arora, an alumnus of IIT-BHU, thought of going ahead with the idea of the Gurgaon-based WorldArtCommunity. “I realised how creators of art are desperately searching for ways to fund their passion,” says Arora. His website offers artists and designers a space to sell their products online. It currently has around 4,000 unique products under categories such as apparels, home décor, photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery and accessories. A commission of 10% is charged from its 360 sellers, who receive orders from all over India.
