About Sumer Raj Chadha

Sumer Raj Chadha, a true patriot of the arts, grew up appreciating art that was acquired over the years by his grandmother, the late Santosh Raj Chadha, who started collecting art in the late 1960s. In the later years, his parents continued to add art to their growing collection and eventually, he converted his lifelong love for art into a business venture. An anecdote from his childhood that still resonates with him is his grandmother’s words on their flight back from an art show in Paris “Every Child Is an Artist”, she quoted the great Pablo Picasso. She encouraged him to paint draw and pursue art with confidence. Growing up under her warm guidance, he inculcated the ethics of creative imagination and learned to appreciate art in its purest form from her and his mother, also a passionate art collector and art advisor.
