Feel Artsy at Artistry

Dou­bling as a space for small, in­de­pen­dent artists to con­gre­gate and as an eatery where peo­ple can come and hang out in a pet­friendly en­vi­ron­ment, Artistry is the per­fect re­treat for lovers of art, food and pets.


First open­ing its doors in 2012, Artistry be­gan as a ca­sual eatery; a space where lo­cals could come to­gether for a cuppa and some desserts. Grow­ing to now in­cor­po­rate a fuller kitchen menu, it’s wooden ta­bles and homely am­biance set the scene per­fect scene for the café gallery, which fea­tures the works of bud­ding artists.

From pho­tog­ra­phy to paint­ings and il­lus­tra­tions, Artistry show­cases both com­mer­cial art and those with a stronger so­cial mes­sage. Yet, the art is not lim­ited to the walls of the space as Artistry reg­u­larly hosts events. “We also do mu­sic and per­for­mance art,” says Prashant So­mo­sun­dram, known as Prash, Artistry’s founder.

“We run a monthly thing called Speakeasy with poet Pooja Nansi, who was a 2016 Young Artist Award re­cip­i­ent from Sin­ga­pore. She usu­ally cu­rates two po­ets and then we do read­ings of their work, or they per­form,” Prash adds.
