ArtBlot started as a brand that looked forward to bringing the indie, the forgotten, the unseen, and the psychedelic to life. With what began in the second half of 2018, the brand has been primarily focused on identifying and collaborating with some of the most influential and unique minds in the art space. With a keen appreciation for everything hand-drawn and illustrated, ArtBlot is all about giving the truly indie a fresh breath of life.
At ArtBlot we focus on three things: original illustrations, sustainable production, and great quality. With these three pillars in mind, our current objective is to open up our mind palaces and create new and exciting merchandise that are fun, unparalleled, and seeped in deeper meaning. Take our collaborations with some of our favourite indie illustrators, they each come with different reasons for why illustration is their art form of choice, and at the same time, these reasons have deep-rooted in what makes them better artists and why they even have a desire to tell the world their story.
It is these stories that inspire us to create. We believe that behind every great artist is a foundational understanding of the universe that is not always acceptable or easily communicable. The artist in question then becomes the soul and the extension of the tools of the trade - an organic Autobot that wishes to communicate. ArtBlot loves our Autobots, we think they are creative minds that have blazed a path to glory in a way that makes some of the most unrivaled artists in all of India - they inspire us to create and are indispensable to the success of ArtBlot.
Our story though has just begun, we’ve started with merchandise that begins to bring to light the changes and shifts in thought that guide the creative flow of indie subculture. We believe that this creative force is deeply aligned with societal change and is imperative to incorporating new life into the world.
