Isha Ambani Piramal: From Childhood Museum Visits to Curating NMACC’s Art House

Share the post :

When Isha Ambani Piramal was a child, she loved visiting museums and art exhibitions during her family vacations abroad. These experiences shaped her sense of identity and fueled her passion for art. Today, this passion is evident in her impressive art collection. Her family shares this love for art, with notable pieces like Robert Indiana’s iconic “Love” sculpture on the front porch of their home and artworks by Subodh Gupta and Ravinder Reddy inside.

Isha’s bedroom features a large painting by F. N. Souza, but she especially cherishes a neon creation by Tracey Emin that her mother, Nita Ambani, gifted her upon graduation. The piece spells out, “When I hold you, I hold your heart.” Another treasured piece is an abstract work by Jennifer Guidi, a wedding gift from her husband, Anand Piramal.

The 16,000-square-foot, four-story Art House at the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC) opened last year and is a testament to Isha’s artistic vision, nurtured by her mother’s encouragement. She fondly recalls how her mother motivated her and her brothers to pursue their interests with dedication. For Isha, this meant sketching, painting, and drawing, which remain her favorite ways to find calm.

In an interview with Vogue India, Isha shared her admiration for female artists in India, mentioning Bharti Kher, Rithika Merchant, and Rana Begum as some of her favorites. Among her vast collection, her most cherished piece is her children’s handprints on a piece of paper stuck on her fridge.

Isha also revealed another precious possession: her engagement ring, a heart-shaped diamond. Despite owning numerous luxurious jewels, including one of the most expensive uncut diamond necklaces in the world, a diamond-studded belt, and a jewel-encrusted blouse, her most valuable possessions are those with sentimental value
