MeMeraki is a platform for Indian arts and artisans and is making a compelling case for art to remain relevant and contemporary.
Being from a family of entrepreneurs, Gupta grew up in Aligarh. After spending her growing years with a typical small-town life in Aligarh, she studied in MGD Jaipur, completing bachelor’s in economics from LSR, an MBA from MDI Gurgaon and also a master’s in finance from HKUST in Hong Kong.
MeMeraki started quite serendipitously as a passion project because of this deep love for traditional art as a hand painted artisanal brand, with the difference that our artists were always the heroes of the brand.
