Tarini Jindal Handa
Creative Director

Tarini Jindal Handa is the creative director of Hampi Art Labs and assists in defining the strategic direction for the organization. 

In an ongoing commitment to progressing India’s social and cultural legacies, throughout her career, Tarini has led projects that interweave historic and contemporary creativity by blending art, design, craft, artisanal skills, and architecture. 

A third-generation patron, she was raised in a culture of supporting the arts; her grandmother founded the Kanoria Centre for Arts, the artist residency in Ahmedabad, and her mother founded Art India magazine. Collecting, supporting craft clusters and commissioning artisans were pillars of her upbringing. Her family is noted for their commitment to architectural preservation. 


After studying fashion marketing at the American University of London, Tarini returned to Mumbai to open the country’s first multi-brand fashion store, Muse. The boutique was known for introducing international labels to the Indian market, as well as for incubating local design talent. Joining the family business, Tarini added to the household name JSW with residential developer JSW Realty. Building on her interest in architecture, the sustainable real estate venture approaches interiors by commissioning the finest artisans from across India. The enterprise thoughtfully considers the evolving Mumbai skyline as public art on the grandest scale. Fusing her interests in design, craftsmanship, and patronage, she founded æquō, India’s first collectible design gallery in 2022.
