Learn something new this weekend!
Inquisitive participants will get informed and endure the history and story of Phad Painting, from a Phad artisan itself, visiting Bangalore, all the way from Rajasthan. You will get a chance to interact with the artisan, hear his story while learning the basic techniques of the miniature version of Phad painting.
Miniatures paintings are a smaller version of phad paintings. The highlight of these paintings is the intricate and delicate brushwork, which lends them a unique identity. The colors are handmade, from minerals, vegetables, precious stones, indigo, conch shells, pure gold and silver. So, keep the windows open and enjoy the cultural fabric of India for all the time to come
Conducted by Nazariya
In this world of digital art and 3D printing, Nazariya is a movement to bring us closer, to the beautiful world of Indian Folk Art. It is an effort in not just reviving these artforms, but also making them relevant for today. Nazariya is trying to bring out the subtle message behind these artforms; the message of unity, brotherhood and community. This is Nazariya’s way of taking you on an incredible journey into India’s past, helping us create a new future.
We believe that artisans need to be respected and promoted, for the art forms they have given their life to. The story of the artisans must be told to the urban youth, to engage them into various art forms, traditions and cultures which are on their way to extinction.
