Roots of our identity

KALACAFE

KALACAFE

KalaCafe’s logo combines 3 elements.

kaa symbol

The core of the design is KA,  the first letter of Indian Devanagari script. It denotes the first alphabet ‘Ka’ of name ‘KalaCafe’ in Devanagari. This ties in with our belief of being rooted in tradition yet open to progressiveness. As much as we believe in keeping the traditional art intact; we also support innovation through a blend of tradition with contemporary designs.

mustacheMustache is symbolic of our Indian artists – their talent, skills and confidence with which they have retained the essence of India’s rich culture and traditions for generations.

ELEPHANT GAJRAJElephant motif has been represented in historical Indian art forms in many ways – stones carvings, sculpture, jewellery, pottery and traditional paintings. Two elephants of our logo align with classical representation of elephants in symmetrical form.

Finally our tagline – Celebrate art.

For Mumbai art lovers, we are holding an exclusive miniature painting workshop this November on 23rd and 24th. No prior knowledge of miniatures is required to attend this workshop. The artist will take the participants through intricacies involved in creating a miniature painting from sketching, grinding and mixing the stone colors, to applying them with special brushes to create their own miniature painting.
