about verve

‘Verve’ in French means enthusiasm in the field of art.
To us Verve means yearning, striving for artistic excellence, power and a kind of liberty to create… an inner melody
It means a conjunction of different attitudes, different personalities and different vibrations thus creating a resonance in a single direction… and certainly, that would be our aim, towards aesthetic and artistic goals.
We don’t know where that goal is, but we have decided to move on. And this is what verve means, to us.

Art Studio Blog

What is a studio really like ? 

 online promotion of the artist studio

We are constantly asked by friends, family and people we come across about what is it really like to be a part of an artist group or how we work and what contemporary visual art is all about.
with this blog we aim to give a glimpse of just that !
We are devoted to the promotion of Art and Culture and the studio encompasses a range of activities from lectures on art to workshops and exhibitions.

A blog seemed like the next step to take, mainly for 2 reasons, as away to keep track of daily happenings and to reach out to a wider audience.

Starting an art studio.

Artist Studio in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

A Group of contemporary Artists.

An introduction :


at ahmedabad studio verve

A common interest is often what brings people together and that is what has led us (Arpit Biloria and Deviba Wala) to the creation of Studio verve. The other Artists are Margee Patel, Riddhi Shah, Kautilya Vyas, Mukund Patel, Snehal Kashikar and last but not the least Mita Sharma, who’s not an artist but she’s always been a part of the group. She writes !

The art studio is located at maninagar, ahmedabad.

it is a space where our group of artists think and work together, where people interested in art are always welcome.
we dedicate few hours each day working and discussing art at the studio…

Verve was founded in 2001, taking on commercial and large scale commission works, over time it has developed or evolved more into an organization that promotes art and encourages young artists to pursue their individual art work.

We decided to add the Prefix Studio to Verve and set up an active physical studio, which we could all use and work from.
it in reality just brought us all under one roof.

We opened up our doors and hearts to all who have a liking for the arts, to all artists, all connoisseurs, or anyone who wants to know what realey happens in an art studio..  it was in reality just cleaning and sorting through our ‘workshop’ or working space and welcoming people in, and yes making storage racks ! lots of storage racks ! 
So here goes our first blog post …  let’s see where it leads us ! 

Where Am I?
