About Us

Expression8 Art was established in the year 2008 and officially launched as a visual art institute in 2010 with the intention of providing good platform for new budding artists who can learn, explore different art forms using different techniques and medium at Expression8 Art.  Our program follows traditional approach with a modern touch where artists can learn various subjects and art forms under a professional guidance. Company is set for artists who can inspire each other and use the platform to demonstrate their artistic talent.


Art Director and Head Teacher Artist Prashanti's extensive knowledge and experience has made this company an opportunity for the community to indulge in the world of art. What started as a small learning center has now become a full-fledged gallery to sell art, train artists, and exhibit art works. Over the past 15 years, we have educated over 15,000+ students and we hope to continue the journey further.

Our Art Gallery and visual Art Learning institute handled and managed from past 4 years in the hands of our young CEO Ms. Pritika Nekkanti who have taken all administration and execution responsibilities very well. Under her management institute survived during the Covid time and implemented all online courses for hundreds of students to continue their learning process. Her contribution will remain as a benchmark, and we will always remember her as an inspiration.


Our staff is always full of enthusiasm and welcomes new artists to participate in different areas of art mediums and techniques. Our positive and creative atmosphere provides every artist to enjoy learning art and excel skills in different art forms and mediums. Our Advance level students get opportunity to join paid internship program where they will teach Art Level-1 course to young kids and get real time experience with experience certificate along with recommendation letter for college.

OUR FABULOUS TEAM!
