The restless spirit of an entrepreneur always finds expression one way or another. Ravindra Gupta the founder of SKYHawk™ Arts discovered this amazing truth. After working in the Insurance, IT, and Education sector for five years, he somewhere felt his entrepreneurial spirit was unfulfilled, and found himself yearning for something different and more meaningful.
During this phase, one day when clearing out his storage space to make room for his own office, Ravindra stumbled upon his childhood hobby of painting. This discovery led him back to his sketchbooks, sparking a creative revival of sorts. Eager to do more, he went to purchase art supplies where he was left stunned by the exorbitant prices.
Realizing the need for a fair balance between price and value in the art supply market, Ravindra, at the age of 25, took a bold step into the world of trading painting canvases, using his own capital.
In 2016, SKYHawk™ was born, marking the official beginning of Ravindra’s venture. The brand secured its registered trademark, and by 2018, Maverick Business Solutions, a modest production unit with three dedicated workers, came into existence under Ravindra’s guidance. Thus, SKYHawk™ Arts was born not just from a desire for something different, but from a commitment to making quality art materials accessible to all.
