Sonia of Laasya Art has a deep understanding of art. It is apparent when she talks about the paintings she sells that is more than a business for her. She is passionate about promoting the artist, understanding their art forms and finding the right match between the painting and her client’s needs. She is very professional. I also like her website which has a very interesting collection of young upcoming artists that are very creative in the way they are using traditional Indian art forms with modern techniques.

While I am always looking to add new contemporary paintings to my collection, I am particular and looking for quality at a fair price. Sonia hosted a reception for an Indian artists, and I was blown away by the paintings. Sonia helped me pick a piece that was a perfect addition to my existing collection, and she also encouraged me to sit with my decision before I bought (the time away from the painting only made me more eager to have it in my home). Sonia has amazing taste, and her dedication to supporting Indian artists is inspiring. If you are looking to add to your existing collection – or looking to start collecting – and especially if you have not yet incorporated pieces from Indian artists in your collection, I urge you to seek out Sonia at Laasya Art.

I had a wonderful experience working with Sonia to acquire a few gorgeous pieces of art from Laasya, a collection she has so fondly created over the past years. The ‘Tree of Life’ by Niranjan, the ‘Panchamukhi Ganesh’ and the ‘Kandarpa Hathi’ by Pranab Narayan Das add a lot of character to our home. It is not often that techies like us invest a lot of time in buying art, and I must say that Sonia definitely made it a special event for us by sharing a great deal of information about not only the artist but also how the art was created, which was very satisfying to our ever-curious minds. Additionally, buying a piece of art is a lot of time and an expense not considered essential to daily life. Thus far we had only made tiny investments by collecting memorabilia when traveling through exotic places. Being first time buyers, we were comfortable making this investment only because we could trust Sonia as a credible source who was offering us original art pieces at a reasonable, realistic price.

I came across Sonia’s amazing collection of paintings by mere luck and am so glad I did. I was always interested in art, but paintings of this kind were new terrain for me. It is different to appreciate something on the walls in an exhibition, but to love something that you can own and enjoy, that was a very exciting experience for me.

Sonia has very quiet way of explaining things to you to make you feel comfortable. She genuinely loves and is passionate about Laasya’s paintings. I was moved by her knowledge about each artist and how each of the pieces stood out in terms of the style.

She led me in the right direction, especially on how to look at the paintings and how to understand the complexity and the pricing. Never having owned this type of art, I was very uncomfortable with the price initially. But she told me, “Choose what your heart says.” She also told me not to buy something if I had to keep telling myself to like it or think too hard about it. In a nutshell, she is true to herself and her collection.

As a high profile non-profit art center in downtown Palo Alto, our mission is to reflect the constantly evolving demographic of our unique town and ensure we are celebrating the diversity of our community. With that aim in mind, we were so lucky to forge a new relationship with Sonia Patwardhan, who is a joy to work with. Sonia has a unique set of skills, a deep understanding of classic marketing methods derived from her impressive history in corporate marketing roles, a true love of art and exceptional connections to cutting edge and established artists from her home country of India. We are enjoying our partnership with her enormously, and our first program hosting an interactive artist talk with Basuki Das Gupta was tremendous fun! We look forward to more collaboration with our new friend Sonia.
