According to Nitin Shroff, Seychelles presence in Venice Art Biennale 2015, “will be an ideal exposure for Seychellois artists”.

The proposal put forward by Nitin Shroff in the presence of local artist Egbert Marday is for Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture to support the project for the setting up of a Seychellois Pavilion of well established visual arts artists at Venice Art Biennale to be held from June until November 2015.

Mr Shroff explained that he has compiled a proposed list of Seychelles visual arts artists that will now need to be updated after feed back from the Ministry of Tourism and Culture.

Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture said his Ministry is “keen to embark on such an interesting project which represents a great revolution for Seychellois visual arts artists to make themselves heard and seen”

Minister St.Ange added that a “Seychelles pavilion at the Venice Art Biennale 2015 can only become a reality and seen as a success story for Seychellois visual arts artists if the support of local painting community is forthcoming’’.
