MTDC Artist-in-Residence: Edition #1

Every blank canvas is just a work of art in waiting.

Events -

Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) takes great pride in hosting travellers and vacationers at 28 wonderful properties across Maharashtra. Apart from exclusive locations and best-in-class amenities, these properties also offer an environment where one can unwind, recharge and get inspired. To celebrate the same, we are delighted to come on board as Residency Partners for the MTDC Artist-in-Residence programme. This will be an opportunity for artists to spend quality time at MTDC properties, practice their craft and also inspire others through their creations, workshops and other interactive activities.

Edition #1 of MTDC Artist-in-Residence saw celebrated graffiti artist ZAKE spend a week at MTDC Grape Park Resort, Nashik. Nestled in the lap of nature, it was just the right space for him to unwind, recharge his creative self and add his unique artistic touch to the property.

"As an artist, you are always looking for a space where you can leave everything else behind. A space to inspire your creative self. This is one such space." - ZAKE


Edition #1 of MTDC Artist-in-Residence also saw globally acclaimed illustrator Anand Radhakrishnan spend a week at MTDC Grape Park Resort, Nashik. The well designed space, serene surroundings and the slow unwinding of time offered him the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate and also work on some stunning landscapes.

"I think we miss these small moments in city life. Here you get a chance to basically watch day turn to night, and that's quite interesting to me." - Anand Radhakrishnan


We would like to take this opportnuity to thank the entire team at MTDC for lending us their unconditional support in making this happen. And we would like to thank the entire staff of MTDC Grape Park Resort, Nashik for being such gracious hosts. We can't wait to be back!
