About the Artwork +

Maestro Sai Kiran sways his viewers to the captivating world of Cheriyal scroll painting through his masterpiece, “The Elephant.” This ancient Indian art form, hailing from the quaint town of Cheriyal in Telangana, comes alive with a riot of colors and rustic charm in this portrayal of a regal queen in her magnificent chariot drawn by resplendent horses. Every hue in this artwork tells a story - from the rich, earthy reds that symbolize passion and valor, to the lush greens that evoke the bountiful landscapes of India. The intricate patterns and motifs, deeply rooted in folklore and mythology, weave tales of bravery and grandeur. This painting is a testament to the enduring allure of Cheriyal art, where history, culture, and artistry unite to create a visual symphony that resonates with tradition and innovation. Kiran's brushwork breathes new life into this age-old art form, making it a stunning addition to any collection, as it transports you to a bygone era of royal opulence and timeless elegance. Cheriyal scroll painting, kept alive through artists like Kiran, continues to paint a vibrant narrative of India's rich heritage.

Sai Kiran Dhanalakota blue-tick

Sai

 Sai Kiran, a 27-year-old artist, is credited with carrying on the history of the Dhanalakota family, the last practising family for Cheriyal Scroll painting. A 160-year-old Cheriyal scroll painted by his great-great grandpa is also on display in a museum in Paris, providing insight into his family's past. With the market for Cheriyal scrolls decreasing, his parents advised him to study rather than pursue painting, but Sai Kiran obtained a degree in fine arts to acquire new art techniques to modernise and make his work relevant in today's times. He wishes the Cheriyal scroll painters knew more about the stories they are painting, because the storytellers for these paintings are autonomous and add their own colour to the stories, but he makes an attempt to study these stories, and his personal favourite is Gaurapuranama's, about Toddy Tappers (Wine tappers). 'We replace our phones every year, our phone covers every two months, change is such a constant, therefore our work needs to stay up with it and adapt,' Sai Kiran says.



Cheriyal Scroll


Cheriyal scrolls, resembling a living narrative akin to cinematic reels or comic strips, intricately weave tales sourced from the tapestry of Indian mythology. Painted in vibrant, predominantly primary hues, with fiery red backgrounds dominating, these artworks exude the unrestricted creative spirit of local artisans, unfettered by the shackles of formal academia. Spanning over four centuries, the cherished tradition of Cheriyal scroll painting is intrinsically woven into the storytelling legacy of its region. These narratives find their roots in the familiarity of ancient literary, mythological, and folk traditions. Unlike scroll paintings in other parts of Asia, which adorned the courts and noble abodes, India's scrolls were the province of wandering bards and village artists, deeply embedded in the rural fabric of life. Though once a prominent artistic expression across Andhra and neighboring regions, each infused with its unique flavors and local customs, Cheriyal scrolls have sought refuge in Cheriyal town, Telangana. Here, they stand as the last bastion, as the waves of modernity, in the form of television, cinema, and computers, steadily encircle this captivating tradition.
