    Soho House Hosts Artist Anita Goel’s ‘Avataran’, in aid of Autism

    In her latest solo show, ace artist Anita Goel exhibits works that defy convention. Titled ‘Avataran’ which loosely translates to the arrival, the paintings in this exhibition showcase her journey and the destination that she has reached, in terms of her art. Being showcased at the plush Soho House, Juhu, in this show, Anita goes beyond the conforming barriers of regular shaped paintings and beautifully gives life to her canvases in different forms. It is interesting to note that the expanse of her vision cannot be contained by square and rectangular-shaped canvases. At times, clad in different degrees of Grey, White and Black, at other instances, shining with colours that are as resplendent as a peacock’s plumage, each piece is as individualistic as it gets. And what’s more is that part of the proceeds from Anita’s show will go towards Yash Charitable Foundation for the cause of Autism.

    Having held a brush in her hand since childhood, London-born, Mumbai-based Anita Goel joined Sir JJ School of Arts to further her talent and has been exploring the horizons of the abstract expressionist form for several years now. Right from the start, she has blended her art in canvassing ideas deeply rooted in freedom. Having exhibited across Mumbai, Delhi, Canada, Dubai, London in over 20-25 shows, Anita’s works are loved the world-over. Her works reflect freedom in its best abstract forms and demonstrate her incredible tenacity to hold on to positivity. Interestingly, Anita is also affiliated with several schools and NGOs, and conducts art therapy workshops for the upkeep of people’s mental health, particularly senior citizens.

    A portion of the sale proceeds from Anita Goel’s current show will go towards Yash Charitable Foundation for the cause of Autism. A Mumbai-based NGO founded in 2014, Yash Charitable Trust was formed by a team of committed individuals with the vision that people with developmental disabilities can live and work in the community of their choice with dignity and self-respect. They provide skill development, training, mental health support with counselling, therapies, and livelihood opportunities.

    “Over the years, I have conducted various art workshops for mentally challenged kids and every time, I am amazed by the potential that these kids display. I truly feel that they are no less than any of us. Autism is a cause close to my heart and I am genuinely grateful to the Almighty that I am able to do a show to help the cause. And I am happy to associate with Yash Charitable Trust for this initiative,” expresses Anita Goel.

    ON DISPLAY: From 28th April to 5th May, 2022.
    TIME: Daily 11 am to 7 pm.
    VENUE: Soho House, 16, Juhu Tara Rd, Chandrabai Nagar, Juhu, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400049.
