The Beginning

Mirage Art Gallery was a Dream and a Vision – A Dream of creating an exquisite place to display art in its many forms; and a Vision of creating a platform, not only for showcasing the works of past and present masters, but also that of talented and semi-renowned artists who have been working with a lot of heart and passion in the circuit for some time.

The dreamer, Mr Sandip Somani, converted this dream to reality in 2011. Mirage Art Gallery came up in the first floor of 701 Block P, New Alipore in the city of Kolkata – The Cultural Capital of India.


Mirage Art Gallery has been established with the mission of generating, sustaining and developing people’s interest in art and creativity.

The fundamental thought behind the gallery is to discover, appreciate and encourage young, talented artists by recognizing their work and providing a global platform to display their talents.

Mr. Sandip Somani has dared to venture into a road less travelled, by showcasing the works of young budding talents – besides displaying the peerless works of the giants of the artistic diaspora – not only from the Indian soil but from all around the globe.


The most striking feature of Mirage is its unique endeavour of showcasing the art of young and upcoming talent, which according to us is of paramount importance. The Gallery takes pride on being associated with the best of skills, vision, imagination and execution.

The Gallery does not restrict itself to a single genre of art and strives to create a mark in the realms of Paintings, Sculptures, Drawings, Digital Arts and Photography – bringing together the MODERN, the CONTEMPORARY, the ABSTRACT and the EXPERIMENTAL forms.

In providing a space that upholds the dignity and validity of this diversity, the Gallery desires to fulfill what it believes to be an integral part of its social and creative responsibility.

Way Ahead

Mirage art gallery aims to be one of the most dynamic and unique art galleries with its novel ideas and approach towards art – and thus evolve into an important arena for artistic display.

The Gallery has exhibited the works of some of the leading artists of the country like M.F. Husain, S.H. Raza, Ram Kumar, V.S. Gaitonde & Krishen Khanna of the Progressive Artists Group to Ganesh Pyne, Dhiraj Choudhury, Jogen Chowdhury, Samir Aich, Rabin Mondal, Paritosh Sen, Prokash Karmakar, Wasim Kapoor & Subrata Gangopadhyay of Bengal to name a few.

Mirage Art Gallery also believes in social responsibility – hence time & again have donated paintings for various charitable purposes.
