About the Artwork +

This exquisite circular painting showcases a vibrant lotus flower, gracefully dividing the composition into two distinct planes. On the right side, the divine Krishna captivates our gaze as he skillfully plays the flute, surrounded by a gentle herd of cows. In contrast, the other side portrays a gathering of mesmerized gopis, enchanted by Krishna's enchanting melodies. Notably, Krishna is adorned with intricate ornaments, embodying his regal form as the king of Dwaraka, rather than the traditional cowherd Krishna depicted with a turban. The painting captivates with its bold and harmonious color palette, skillfully combining bright, contrasting hues that enhance the overall visual impact.

As a historical context, the Kalamkari art form, formerly known as Pattachitra, has been cherished across generations. Its roots can be traced to neighboring regions such as Odisha, as well as other parts of India and Nepal. The term "Pattachitra" derives from "patta," meaning "cloth," and "chitra," meaning "picture," reflecting the art's origin on fabric and fabric scrolls. Notably, references to such paintings are found in ancient Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain literature. During the medieval Islamic rule, the term Kalamkari emerged, combining "kalam," representing "pen" in Telugu, and "kari," signifying craftsmanship. It gained popularity under the patronage of the Golconda sultanate.

It's worth mentioning that this particular painting has been lovingly created on a made-to-order basis, ensuring its unique and personalized nature. Every stroke and detail of this artwork reflects the artist's skillful craftsmanship and commitment to capturing the divine essence of Lord Krishna's musical enchantment.

Kalamkari


Kalamkari refers to the ancient style of hand painting done with a tamarind pen, using natural dyes. The name Kalamkari originates from Persian words qalam (pen) and kari (craftsmanship). Paintings made on fabric and fabric scrolls are mentioned in ancient Hindu, Buddhist and Jain literature. Under medieval Islamic rule, the term Kalamkari was derived from the words "kalam", which means "pen" in Telugu, and "kari", which means craftmanship. This became popular under the patronage of the Golconda sultanate. Motifs drawn in this ancient art of Kalamkari, include flowers, peacock, paisleys and also divine characters from Ramayana and Mahabharata. Kalamkari colours are made mostly from vegetable dyes. The popularity of this exquisite form of painting has earned international repute for the state of Andhra Pradesh. Kalamkari art was the household occupation of several rural women and craftsmen in the ancient times and continues to be passed down from one generation to the next. Artforms like Kalamkari have started gaining more and more popularity in recent times because of their no-chemical process of creating printed textiles.
