USP Every piece of art is made with 100 per cent acid free paper
Chhaap has breathed new life into the dying art of printing. Started by three Baroda- based artists— Gulam Mohammed Sheikh, Vijay Bagodi and Kavita Shah— this non- profit organisation creates awareness about the traditional way of printing and its techniques. Here you will find works of artists like Nagji Patel, Jyoti Bhatt, Paula Sengupta, Surendran Nair and Helene Baribeau. Their latest collection is Ganjifa ( a card game that originated in Per- sia)— 54 artists from India, Japan, USA, Europe and South Africa have used their country’s cultural impressions on these cards. And what makes them unique is that one block which carries one design and is used no more than 10 times. Every piece of art is made with 100 percent acid free paper.
