Indian Folk Paintings

Paintings from Indian Folk

Folk art painting has been an integral part of Indian civilization and Indian Folk Painting continues to be a living tradition. Colorful designs, invariably tinged with mystic belief are found in rural folk paintings. They reveal the traditional aesthetic sensibility of the Indian village.

The Madhubani paintings of Bihar, the Pata paintings of West Bengal and the Nirmal paintings of Andhra Pradesh are only a few from the vast gallery of Indian folk paintings. Epics, puranas, the Krishna-lila (antics of Lord Krishna) etc., are their main sources of inspiration. Gods and goddesses are depicted in all possible forms and actions, and are painted in varieties of technique and color.
