What is POBA?
POBA is the first-ever “virtual cultural arts center” to celebrate the enduring and transformative power of creativity by featuring works of deceased 20th and 21st century artists that span the full gamut of artistic expression. POBA was founded to showcase, promote and preserve the creative work of exceptional artists who have died without recognition of the full measure of their talents or creative legacies. Our name derives from the Hindi word phowa – describing the transformation of consciousness at death. POBA’s mission is simple: POBA aims to keep their creative works alive, and through them to inspire, provoke, intrigue, entertain, and enliven us.
