Founder of Art Beat and Co-founder at Paint Bar, self-taught artist, and marketing graduate from Christ University, Nishka Mehta has redefined the city’s interest in hand-made art at the age of 26. While she’s been drawing since she was nine years old, she took to the brush more seriously at 18. At 21, Nishka was running a full-fledged online marketplace promoting affordable, customized art.

Since then, there has been no looking back. Today, Nishka creates just about anything – cartoon-themed Save the Date cards, 3D fixtures and art installations, hand-painted logos – and that’s just scratching the surface. She also manages Paint Bar, a series of weekend workshops that gives everyone a chance to take home a beautiful painting.

Nishka has begun selling her work to patrons across the country, and hopes to open a stand-alone store very soon.
