Welcome to Laasya Art

Contemporary & Traditional Indian Art

Laasya Art is a leading Indian art gallery in Palo Alto (San Francisco Bay Area), dedicated to the promotion of contemporary and traditional Indian art. We showcase a highly curated collection of original paintings by both emerging and established Indian artists, each selected by our founder, curator and resident art advisor Sonia Nayyar Patwardhan. Whether you are a seasoned collector or looking to buy Indian art for the first time, we offer complimentary art advisory services to our clients. We can also help you to commission a painting, as we are considered experts on custom artworks.



We renovated our home recently and had a specific size and palate requirement for artwork on one of our walls. Sonia’s knowledge and guidance were really helpful for us to take this decision on a commission by Anuradha Thakur. Never once did we feel pressured into something that we did not want. She completely understood our need, and she gave us the time to make the decision.

I have been lucky to witness Sonia set up Laasya Art from the early days in 2008. In fact, one of her very first exhibitions was held in my home, and I was one of her first clients. Right from the beginning, her passion for fine art has been evident in the way she describes the painting to her clients. She is able to very eloquently and thoughtfully convey the story and the inspiration behind the artist’s work, since she has personally met nearly all of them in their environments. Every time I have been confused about which particular painting to buy, she has encouraged me to go with my instinct and feel the art in my heart.

I have acquired unique pieces from Sonia over the years. Each piece is of excellent quality and unique. Sonia is patient, has a good eye for what works well in your home and has acquired a broad base of artist network that she can draw from. I check out her website every now and then to see what’s new and different or classic and elegant.
