The artists in the State can grow only if art becomes a feasible investment option, artist K.P. Thomas has said.

Celebrated artists make cities such as Mumbai their base or migrate abroad as they do not have enough opportunities to hold exhibitions or sell their work, Mr. Thomas, one of the organisers of the Contemporary Art Fair, part of the Grand Kerala Shopping Festival, said.

The GKSF, by organising the fair, could open up a great opportunity for artists and sculptors in terms of finding market for their work.
