Founded in 2019, Art & Charlie took humble steps as a nomadic gallery that curated art shows in and near Mumbai. In the beginning, their shows were conducted in downtown cafes and restaurants such as The Bombay Canteen in 2019-20. 

During the pandemic Art and Charlie pivoted to a fully online platform, conducting inquisitive and informative events such as “Art and the Constitution” and “WTF are NFTs”. With all the memories of the past and preserving it for the future, Art and Charlie’s tryst with technology will now continue through this new e-commerce website. 

Our new space in Bandra is the perfect spot for avid art appreciators, art collectors as well as those who are now starting to learn about art. Welcome to Bandra’s first art and culture house by Art and Charlie. 

Meet the gallerist

An ex-McKinsey consultant and a chartered accountant, Ayesha Parikh's early years after college set her up for all the basic skills for entrepreneurship. That said, what she holds most dear from these years is the opportunity to travel and visit some of the best museums, fairs and galleries of contemporary art the world had to offer. Five years into the workforce, her love for visual art became too hard to ignore and she started attending evening courses at institutions like Sotheby's and Node Center for Curation Studies to learn more about the art world. When the moment presented itself, she left the corporate world to start Art and Charlie in Mumbai.
