Ruchir Panchakshri: Putting nashik on a global art map

Story of Mr. Ruchir Panchakshri started back in year 2006, A B.Com grad from BYK college with no inclination towards traditional ways out after his commerce degree he opted out for something else even after getting an admission for a MBA course. During graduation he started a small business of making frames with a capital of barely 200 Rs. along with his friends which lasts till his graduation, even after it remains but merely as a hobby. As soon as he opted out from MBA, he spent most of his time in Mumbai particularly at Masjid Bandar wholesale market to find some good which he can sell in Nashik but destiny took him to Pune where he got something called “Namaskar Supari” and he started selling Supari Packets for the profit of 4Rs a packet.

In between all this he used to visit multiple art galleries and exhibitions across India for his keen interest in arts. After realizing about a potential market for wall hanging, frames, and interior accessories  he started making frames in which he already have an expertise. So he set up some stalls at places like temple, outside big bazaar and even on a street. This activity became foundation for Ruchir Art Gallery.
