our story

Kai Rassi creates vocational art programmes and spaces for differently-abled artists, helping them make, market and earn an income from their original artworks.


We provide our artists with individualised instruction, mentorship, art materials and marketing assistance, helping them contribute to the art in our society and developing a sense of purpose with confidence.

Our artists are largely self-taught and tell authentic, unique and unfiltered stories through their artwork.


Kai Rassi Foundation is an Non-Profit Organisation founded in 2017, registered under the Indian Companies Act.



origins | 

Kairassi is a tamil word that loosely translates to auspicious hands - alluding to the luck that one is born with.


Artists are creative individuals who are able to use their creativity to create things of beauty - for the rest of us to admire. The origin of any artist is practising their hand at perfecting something as simple as straight lines later translating into their unique artistic style and vision.


We, at Kai Rassi believe in using what we have to make a difference - and that in our differences lie our strengths. We are committed to unearthing and guiding our differently-abled artists along their artistic journey.
