About the Artwork +

The term usta is derived from Persian word ustad or master in a particular art or several arts. Usta art is a broad term which is the combination of many different forms of arts and techniques.

In current times, the most popular form seen is the gold emboss work. This form of art is performed on walls, ceilings, glass, wood, marble and artifacts made of camel leather also. During its origin, all forms of usta art other than paintings were generally seen on walls but during British period, the usta art was transferred to light weight material for easy transport. Thus the pots made of camel leather were used to carry oil and fragrance.

In the modern context, this art form is practiced on various home decor and lifestyle products, with variety of base such as wood, marble,
Usta kala has travelled to India through multiple regions, seeing various art traditions.
Jawed Usta ji is the student and son of renowned artist Md. Haneef Usta ji, who has won a National award for his masterpiece on marble slab.
