Q: Why did you start Art Sumo?
A: A couple of years ago, Naysawn met an artist named Abhishek while traveling through New Delhi, India. Abhishek, along with the rest of his immediate family, specialized in extremely intricate depictions of the story of Krishna and it was more impressive than anything he had ever seen. Yet despite the incredible richness of the paintings versus the incomparably cheap price, he recounted how difficult it was to find enthusiastic buyers in his local market. Naysawn couldn't help but think about the number of friends and family back home who would absolutely love to hang Abhishek's art on their own walls and how expensive comparable work would be at home. To make it easier for international artists to gain exposure, he decided to leave his job at Microsoft, to found ArtSumo to make this possible.
