About Us

The Indian Academy of Fine Arts Amritsar (IAFA) is one of the oldest & the most prestigious Art Institution of India promoting Art & Culture in the region. The Academy was established by Master Gurdit Singh, an eminent artist of that time with the help of other artists (Founder Members: Sh. Kedar Nath Sharma Film Director, Sh. B.S.Sewak, Mohd. Hussain Painter, Sh.S.D.Oberoi, Sh. Mallah Ram and others) in the year 1928. Who could imagine, the seed they were bowing sitting in a small room (situated at Mahna Singh Road, Amritsar) will blossom into a big tree (institution)!

In the year 1932, S.G. Thakur Singh took over the charge of Academy as President. He with other renowned artists (S. Hari Singh, G. S. Sohan Singh, S. Gurbachan Singh, S. Dalip Singh, S. Sobha Singh and others) continued working for the sake of Art.

Sh. Dhruv Dev Arora and Sh. Sunder Dass Oberoi (both Hon. General Secretaries at different periods) supported artists to pursuits their dreams.
