bCA Galleries works on an international level to ensure a cross cultural exchange between artists and art lovers globally. We have noticed a trend of art getting rather localized, showing the works of artists from a particular city. This finally leads to a paucity of ideas and visual stimulation and ultimately a sense of ennui amongst art lovers who have a thirst for the unusual. bCA has stepped in assuage this drought by bringing European artists to India and simultaneously showing the works of Indian artists abroad. This cross-cultural exchange presents untold possibilities of the impact it will have on the future of the Indian art scene. bCA Galleries has been instrumental in organizing Namaste India, exhibiting the works of 50 Indian artists in different locations in Italy. These artists have been well received and of them the works of four artists were shown again in an exhibition titled “Arambh” in Italy. The Indian artists can now avail of an international platform and their diverse work helps to create awareness about Indian art breaking out of the traditional mold of folk art. Yet, bCA Galleries has not forgotten its duties towards India’s rich cultural heritage, we are actively promoting artist Jivya Soma Mashe who is the pioneer of Warli tribal art in India. At the same time, prominent Italian artists have had showings in India through the aegis of bCA Galleries. Artists Azelio Corni and Pino Ceriotti have had two shows in India, which have been very well received. The works of three promising Italian artists: Bruno di Lecce, Pino Oliva, and Silvia Serenari have also created a stir in the Mumbai art scene. One of the leading lights of the Italian art scene, Lucia Pescador, also had her solo show in Mumbai which received rave reviews from the press. In the near future, bCA plans to widen our field of focus of promoting Indian artists to include other European countries, the USA and China. We also intend to have a show featuring the works of contemporary promising Chinese talent in India. We seek to establish an ongoing relationship with the artists we promote and build a tradition of quality and trust around the globe.
Lucia Pescador is a painter whose works were previously displayed in Mumbai by the bCA Galleries. She is well known in Italy for her vibrant colours and a character that distinguishes her work, making her a favourite of collectors.”
Mino La Franca is one of the best-known fashion photographers in Italy, where his work has been in every major magazine and billboard. He now divides his time between Milan and Mumbai where several of his campaigns like De Damas bear his creative trademark.
Pino Marchese is in his own words, an architect by education and photographer by passion. After graduating from the University of Florence Architecture College in 1990 he came to Auroville in 1997 and has was doing architecture work around India.
