Aparajitha is the brain (and the hand) behind “Art Care”, the Art Conservation Studio she set up in Chennai in 2007. The passion towards art and deep concern towards preserving heritage, antique objects of art was what motivated her towards taking up Fine Art education at the undergraduate level, followed by Masters in Conservation and Restoration of Works of Art.

After an internship at the Art Conservation Centre, INTACH (Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage), New Delhi, specializing in the “Conservation of Oil Paintings”, Aparajitha has been actively working in the field of Art Conservation. From the Buddhist Wall Paintings at Shey and Basgo in Ladakh to Raja Ravi Varma Paintings in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, Oil Paintings from the Asiatic Society Collection in Kolkata, West Bengal to Photographic Collection of Chowmahalla Palace, Hyderabad, Andhara Pradesh, Aparajitha has been a member of several on-site heritage conservation projects which has given her a wide-ranging exposure to diverse materials and their preservation techniques and conservation methodologies. 

Aparajitha has independently executed heritage conservation projects as well dealing with Stone Pillars in a living monument at Papanasam, Tamil Nadu and the Antique Tiled floor in a functioning building of State Bank of India-Chennai Main Branch, Tamil Nadu which adds further to the remarkable variety of materials on which she has worked.

At Art Care, Aparajitha is constantly working towards preserving and conserving an eclectic range of paintings, both traditional ones like Thanjavur, Kalamkari and Pichwai paintings as well as modern contemporary works like those of Adimoolam and M.F.Husain besides a host of other artefacts.
