Chandigarh, November 24

Chandigarh-based startup Chhapai.com has brought laurels to the city by creating a world record along with 2,800 national and international artists.

Chhapai.com, in collaboration with International Art and Imagination Forum (IAIF), created a world record by bringing together artists from over 100 countries, 2800-plus art submissions in 25 categories. Titled as World’s Largest Online Creativity Event- W-LOC, this one-of-a-kind event took place on November 7 and 8.

Rajesh Batra, the man behind International Art & Imagination Forum, wanted to give back to the community of artists in a way that their art gets admired not only in their own regions but also beyond borders and boundaries.

“We have been working with designers, visual artists, illustrators, editors, writers from different parts of India and abroad. All these creative minds are the base of my venture and when this Covid situation arrived, I observed how severely it impacted the economic livelihoods and morale of these artisans,” said Rajesh.
