About the Artwork +

In artist Kalyan Joshi’s Phad Painting, he masterfully weaves a tapestry of Hindu mythology and artistic expression. At its heart stands the mesmerizing "Tree of Life" or "Akshaya Vata," a symbol steeped in divine significance. This remarkable piece encapsulates the essence of the Trimurti, with Lord Brahma as the creator, Lord Vishnu as the preserver, and Lord Shiva as the destroyer. Joshi's canvas bridges the realms of life and death, Earth and heaven. The tree's subterranean roots delve deep into the underworld, while its towering trunk pierces the terrestrial plane and ascends skyward. The upper branches, like intricate tendrils, coil and intertwine, symbolizing their celestial connection. In this ethereal work, the artist's use of color theory is nothing short of breathtaking. Rich earthy tones anchor the tree's roots, while vibrant celestial hues exude heavenly splendor. The intricate patterns and motifs breathe life into the divine narrative, allowing viewers to transcend time and space, exploring the intricate dance between creation and destruction in Hindu cosmology. This artwork not only captivates the eye but also draws the soul into the profound depths of Hindu mythology and artistic expression.

Kalyan Joshi blue-tick

Kalyan Joshi's artistic journey commenced when he was just eight years old, as he embarked on a creative voyage under the guidance of his father and revered Guru, Shree Shrilal Joshi. The Joshi family has proudly upheld the rich tradition of Phad artistry for generations.

Kalyan Joshi's contributions to the Phad art form are truly remarkable. His monochromatic interpretations and collaborations with narrative poetry have expanded the horizons of Phad painting, pushing its boundaries beyond conventional norms. His dedication and innovation in the field of Phad painting were duly recognized when he was awarded the prestigious National Award in 2012.

In addition to his artistic endeavors, Kalyan Joshi has also made a significant impact through the establishment of "ANKAN" Kala Sansthan. This initiative has played a pivotal role in introducing Phad paintings to countless young enthusiasts, ensuring the preservation and propagation of this traditional art form for generations to come.



Phad


  The Phad painting tradition is widely prevalent in the western state of Rajasthan. It is a folk heritage which is part of both the tangible and intangible aspects of our heritage. Traditionally, the Phad paintings were religious and seldom done commercially. However, today we see its commercialization as it is not possible for the artists to survive solely on the basis of commissions from religious Phad. There has been no literary record of the development or even the mention of Phad in the court traditions of the provincial courts of Rajasthan. This is because these paintings were not made for artistic purposes but were religious in nature. Phad paintings are the most complex and elaborate of the pictorial devices used for story telling in India. They were traditionally used as movie scrolls, with special emphasis on each scene. They narrated the stories of local folk deities such as Pabuji, Devnarayan, Ramdev pir, Dharamraj, etc. These local heroes are different from each other, but are worshipped because of the similar reason that they have all protected their cattle. The history of Phad paintings date back to 700 years and are of pure indian subcontinental origin. The chitera, or the professional Phad painters developed the art form in the district of Pur, near Bhilwara, Rajasthan. The traditional painters migrated to Shahpura in the 16th century and then to the city of Bhilwara in the 19th century. Find more about this Living Temple Heritage of Bhilwara here
