“Handicraft is feelings transfused into a piece of cloth” – when we speak about Indian art forms, handicrafts come foremost in our minds. An artist pours his soul into the work wanting nothing more than his emotions to be conveyed.
Their contribution to our culture is immense and behind it lays their painstaking efforts. What is interesting about Indian handicrafts is that every religion finds its place in these artworks. #Jainism, #Sikhism, #Islam or even #Christianity has been depicted in major paintings. Thousand year old Patachitra speaks about folklore from Bengal.
Not only in various hand crafted paintings but garments also portray a heritage dipped in richness and cultural exuberance. The ancient fabric painting of Kalamkari or the organic block print of Ajrakh still thrive in this blooming age of textiles. Be it the marble stone craft of Agra or the incredible #Warli art painted lanterns, India is still a place for art enthusiasts all over the world. India Imprints wishes to be that one stage which will proudly bring all of these craftwork under one roof.
