Who We Are

TurmericEarth is India's first independent creative arts company that pioneered art infrastructure in the country by offering innovative, comprehensive, and bespoke services to art connoisseurs, collectors, artists, institutes, and galleries.

Established in 2002, TurmericEarth draws on nearly five decades of experience and involvement with art and its global industry. Our inherent insight into the needs of the art world resulted from long meaningful associations with art collectors, art, practitioners, and art professionals from around the world, through varying projects.

TurmericEarth was born out of a vision to provide a holistic support-system and infrastructure to the visual arts. In fulfilling this vision, we have persistently worked to bring within one span all services related to an artwork from advisory, curation, and acquisition to conservation, evaluation, and logistics.
