We had the good fortune of connecting with Arushi Kapoor and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Arushi, how do you think about risk?
Anything worth having will be risky. I would consider myself a high risk taker and I enjoy it. This shows clearly in how I deal with work. I take risks on emerging artists and give them art shows. I take risks doing larger art deals. Without risk, the reward isn’t worth it. When a person chooses a career, there is opportunity cost. That itself is a risk. Growth and Risk go hand in hand.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
ARTSop Consulting is a fine art consulting service for Blue Chip artworks. Arushi Arts is a gallery that represents up and coming artists universally. We focus on getting art collectors the best asset class artworks at the best prices. Our clients continously come to us because they see the value. Our business model has changed drastically since the day we started. As time goes on, we had more experiences and grew as an organization. This called for more provisions put in place. We streamlined our procedures so people can buy and sell art through us with the greatest ease. One can only overcome challenges by continuing to be at it. Problems don’t solve themselves in a day. You prevail when you continue to play the game.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I personally am a relatively low key person. I absolutely love food. My favorite places in town are hole in the wall places. The Best Fish Tacos in Ensenada, Los Feliz and Petit Trois in hollywood is a must. Il pastaio is great for a casual fun Italian Time. Gwen in West Hollywood for the best meats. Pine and Crane for the best asian in all of Los Angeles. Matsuhisa for Sushi. My favorite night out is with my two most entertaining friends Kendall and Kurosh. It’s always a story. Members in downtown has been great in COVID times for drinks. Sound was one of my favorite places to go to pre covid for a night out.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There is several people’s efforts involved in every person’s success. Even today, my uncle Raj and father, Akash, mentor through situations in life. My mother, Payal, introduced me to the art world and showed me the skillset needed to survive. Paul Schimmel is a close friend that often gives me direction in the art world. All of them together get premiere credit for any of my success.
