The Bindu Art School was founded in the year 2005 by the Austrian Multimedia Artist and Curator
Werner Dornik and the Indian Social Activitst Padma Venkataraman, daughter of the former
State President R. Venkataraman.
The Bindu Art School uses art to change the lives of cured people affected by leprosy.
By painting pictures and selling them, the students cum artists attain financial independence without
the discrimination of receiving alms.
By the way of a snowball effect, the artists of the Bindu Art movement support similarly affected individuals
with 30% of their income and, in turn, teach them what they themselves have learned.
For people affected by leprosy this unique process is far removed from a charity-based approach.
They are consequently treated with respect and attain dignity.
Indeed, their lives become resurrected.
Kriti Gallery supports Bindu Art School by helping to sell their artworks.
