About the Artwork +

Renowned artist Dinesh Soni's Pichwai is not just a painting; it's an odyssey through history, culture, and spirituality, capturing the divine essence of Shrinathji in each brushstroke. Pichwai, a splendid manifestation of Krishna as the seven-year-old Shrinathji, is a journey through 400 years of Rajasthani history. The roots of this art form remain shrouded in mystery, perhaps sprouting from the unearthing of a sacred mountain holder idol near Udaipur in 1400 CE. During the 16th century, gifted local artists adorned the holy temple, creating resplendent Pichwai paintings, giving birth to the Mewar school of Rajasthani art. "Pichwai" itself, derived from Sanskrit, elegantly describes its essence: 'pichh' (back) and 'wai' (hanging textile). The vibrant tapestry of colors meticulously selected and harmonized dances across the canvas. This color theory brings the enchanting form of Shrinathji to life in a visual symphony of devotion. Patterns and motifs tell their stories within this art form, every stroke a reflection of deep spirituality. From lotus flowers symbolizing purity to intricate peacocks representing Lord Krishna's enchanting presence, every element weaves into a sacred narrative.

Pichwai Art

Pichwai art (also known as pichhavai, pichhvai, pechhavai etc) is a traditional form of painting that originated in Nathdwara, Rajasthan. These paintings are typically used as decorative backdrops in Hindu temples, particularly those dedicated to Lord Shrinathji or Krishna. Pichwai literally means ‘that which hangs from the back’ and comes from the Sanskrit words ‘Pich – back and Wais- hanging. Other than its artistic appeal, it is created with the intention to narrate the tales of Krishna to its devotees. History and Tradition The origins of Pichwai art date back to the late 17th century when the Nathdwara temple was established in Rajasthan. These were traditionally commissioned by the temple priests for religious worship and ceremonies and often narrate the stories of Krishna's life, like his childhood Leela, the Raas Leela, Govardhan Leela, and other significant events. Other subjects depicted are the changing seasons, with detailed representations of flora, fauna, and traditional Rajasthani architecture. Techniques  Pichwai paintings are known for their detailed work and vivid use of colors. Traditionally, the paintings are created on cloth or canvas using natural dyes and pigments. Artists begin with the sketch of the painting and later natural colours are filled with brushes. Occasionally, they are enhanced by adding gems and crystals. Gold and silver leaf are also used to add a touch of opulence to the paintings. Shehzaad Ali Sherani, Dinesh Soni, Sushil Soni, and Jayesg Sharma are some of the notable artists dedicated to this exquisite art form.
