About Us


SHURUA(R)T strives to provide a robust and exclusive online marketplace for student artists. For the buyer, we offer ease of access to affordable yet outstanding works of art. It takes years of rigorous training with gifted faculty members for our student artists to perfect the nuances of their craftsmanship. 

Most of the students that we work with are not from the economically privileged section of society. They are gifted, yet lack access to a market focused on promoting their efforts. By creating a marketplace to showcase their artwork, not only are we helping them finance their education, we are opening doors for them to develop into professional artists. 

We are currently based in Varanasi, India, and our initial focus is to work with students of Banaras Hindu University.
