Artist


Jayesh Sharma

Jayesh Sharma ji, who resides in Nathdwara, Rajasthan, has been a Pichwai artist for more than 38 years, and his family has been practising this art for 400 years as well, with 9 generations of his family being Pichwai painters and linked with the temple in Nathdwara. He is currently teaching his children to carry on the family legacy. He enjoys experimenting with his paintings while keeping the beliefs and tale untouched. He considers his profession to be a commitment and as a responsibility towards soceity. One of his favourite themes is the Annakut festivities. His grandfather's Gangaramji Sharma's art was on exhibit at Mumbai's Bhuleshwar temple. His paintings can be seen in the Shrinathji temple in Nathdwara and Udaipur, the Badrinath temple in Manasa, Madhya Pradesh, the Dakor temple in Gujarat, and the Bada Mandir Haveli in Mumbai. Indra Daman Goswami ji has awarded him a Prasashti Patra for his services to the Lord's Wall at Nathdwara. He clearly embodies the adage, "Allow your passion to become your mission, and it will one day become your vocation."



Art Form

Pichwai-art

The art of Pichwai originated over 400 years ago, illustrating tales of Shrinathji, an incarnation of Krishna, the deity manifest as a seven-year-old child. Prominent in th Nathadwara region of Rajasthan especially in the Vaishnavite sect, the paintings are hand-painted on cloth or paper and depict different scenes and stills - lotuses, Radha, Gopis and cows are also frequent subjects. What started as a religious practice, is an art today and finds place in the form of paintings and wall hangings in homes of many art connoisseurs.

LIVE workshops happen in real time over zoom along with the Master Artist and a small group. Live workshops have different levels. We only have a few Masterclasses right now - Lippan art from Kutch and Pichwai art from Nathdwara, Rajasthan and are producing and adding more every month. While we cover more than 60 heritage art and craft forms in our live workshops already.
