Eco Art - nihonga - a kaleidoscope of experiments

Dear all
All friends are invited to solo exhibition of my Eco Art at EPICENTRE, at Apparel House, sector 44 Gurgaon on the weekend Fri- 29th Oct to Sunday 31st Oct.. This is an Event of the Japan Culture Month, New Delhi. The paintings are created with rock mineral pigments and thus have the amazing brilliance of these pigments. There are sumi-e too, which are monochrome ink brush single stroke paintings.
This art form is relatively unknown to the contemporary artists outside Japan (wikipidia- nihonga outside japan) and has been an exciting challenge for me. It is an obsession & a challenge . website:
Please do come so that I can meet you and you my art.

Fibre Glass containers for Planters

When creativity dawns on me, I love to paint anything that can be used to enhance the interiors. Here, I have handpainted fibre glass containers for planters which are unbreakable & treated waterproof. A lot of establishments which have large spaces, acquire these for their indoor plants, enhancing further the beauty of the plant, as well as the interiors. height 14" width 12" .

With the overwhelming response & appreciation we received we have expanded into new products such as customizable art on ceremic mugs, high quality prints and handpainted fibre glass pot containers. These are handy gifts for all kinds of occasions as well as bring aesthetics into everyday living. All of these can be viewed at

matka series 4

This painting depicts a woman carrying her matka to fetch water. Rajasthan being a Desert State in India, the background shows sand dunes. Women there generally wear heavily gathered skirts and colorful attire to keep the heat away. Rajasthan being my birth State, naturally I love to paint the vibrant colors & moods of the folklore, which comes alive with the brilliance of mineral pigments.

Art Exhibition

Happy to start my blog with the news of a solo exhibition of my paintings just finalised at the EPICENTRE - a cultural hub in Gurgaon. dates : Friday 29th October -Sunday 31st October. All are welcome.

My paintings as most of you may be aware, are created with eco mineral pigments like oyster shells, corals, semi precious stones, gold and silver on hand made paper. This technique travelled from India in the 6th century thru China Korea to Japan, where they perfected it and gave it the name of Nihonga. This art form is relatively unknown to the contemporary artists outside Japan (wikipidia- nihonga outside japan) and has been an exciting challenge for me. It is an obsession, as it involves the use of ecofriendly mediums & is a No No to chemicals.
