Sam Pitroda - Artist & Collector
Sam is an internationally renowned inventor and tech guru, most notably known as the man that connected India by inventing the digital switch for the telephone. Sam’s love for the arts dates back to his childhood, where creativity was an outlet that complemented his math and science background. He is an avid international collector and has a love for abstract and geometrically inspired works. Sam has been painting for over 60 years and has created hundreds of pieces and thousands of sketches. The mixing of colors and the movement of the brush became a therapeutic reprieve from his hectic schedule.
“Creating offers me the opportunity to see and represent the world in a different and unique way.”
Sonja Miokovic - Curator & Creator
Sonja grew up in an art gallery where she lived and breathed creativity as a child. What she loves most about the artistic process is the conversation with oneself while creating. As a social scientist and serial entrepreneur, creativity fuels her endeavors and feeds her love for putting unsuspecting things together. She has curated many shows with international artists, paints, dabbles in printmaking, silversmithing and sculpture. Having travelled to over 75 countries, visiting art galleries is the way she connects with places. She wishes she had more wall space to showcase her growing collection.
“I am addicted to the mysteries behind falling in love with a piece of art at first sight.”
