About the Artwork +

The painting depicts the “Tree of Life” is known as "Akshaya Vata" (Akshaya means immortal and Vata means tree) in Hindu mythology and refers to Banyan tree.The Banyan tree is associated with many Hindu gods like Lord Shiva, the ascetic Hindu God; and Yama, the God of death. It represents one's spiritual aspirations and detachment from materialism. The painting here depicts animals that are found in jungles and forests. 

About the Art : The Rogan Art, an ancient textile art,originating from Persia. It came to Nirona Village Kutch Gujarat around 400 years ago. Rogan is a form of textile painting utilising rich, brightly coloured paint made from castor oil and natural colours. The term Rogan means ‘Oil-based’ in Persian. It refers to the thick substance formulated by heating and adding castor oil in cold water. Rogan paste is made in the jungle where artisans mix oil and natural colour. After it is mixed with natural colours, the paste is drawn out into a fine ‘thread’ with a metal stylus called ‘Kalam’. The artisans then place a small amount of this paint paste into their palm and at body temperature, the paint is carefully twisted across the cloth into motifs and patterns using the ‘Kalam’. Next, the artisan folds the fabric thereby printing its mirror image. The finer details are then added thus completing the Rogan painting.

About the Artist : Rizwan Khatri is a 7th generation Rogan artist. His father Sidik Khatri, a well known Master artist from village Nirona in Kutch lost everything after the 2001 earthquake and had to forcibly give up rogan art in order to support his family. Rizwan was a young student then but had the vision and love for his family's heritage to take up rogan art again. His father, first skeptical, saw his perseverance and supported him and his brother then took up the art too and together they have been innovating and taking this art forward in new ways. His work has now also been showcased at the Lakme Fashion Week and a painting by him has also been presented by PM Modi to the British High Commissioner. Rizwan has now also taken the initiative to teach this art to 15 women in his village - again a testament to his progressive thinking as women were earlier barred from learning this art.

    Rogan Art


    This craft is a form of surface embellishment and practiced for over hundred years, but now by only a few families in Nirona, Kachchh. A special paste made of castor is used in this craft. Castor seeds are hand-pounded to extract the oil and turned into a paste by boiling, Colored powder diluted in water is then mixed with this. The pastes of different colors yellow, red, blue, green, black and orange are stored in earthen-pots with water to prevent them from drying up. The kalam, an iron rod, flat at both ends, is used to paint half the design with the support of the fingers of the left hand. It is then impressed on the other half of the cloth by pressing the two halves together. As they were inexpensive substitutes for embroidered textiles, they were popular alternative textiles for clothing. Today, cushion covers, bed spreads, skirts, kurtas, curtains, tablecloths and wall hangings are painted using this technique. Generally, geometrical motifs are preferred; motifs from nature such as tree-of-life are very popular for wall hangings.
