About Miniature Painting

Originated in the 16th century, this art form is known for its incredibly detailed and elaborate style of images created on a highly minute canvas to bring out enchanting visuals. The art form was first commissioned by Rajput kings to preserve the royal festivities in a narrative format. In Rajasthan, the location of the artisan modifies the painting styles and patterns. Every place tells a different story such as hunting scenes in Alwar, Deccan and Mughal elements in Bundi, and Hindu myths and legends in Bikaner.

    This experience with a Padmashree artist himself was wow! How could it not be! He taught us the brushing techniques, about the earth colours he used for paintings and many more. He did not miss any minute details while teaching us how to paint a miniature painting. This is a whole new idea of learning and experiencing art from an award-winning artist. Thank you Rajasthan Studio for this! I highly recommend this platform for booking session and experience this exquisite artform!

    What a fun time we had at this miniature painting experience. It was an honour for us to meet a Padamshree Artist. Ali gave us an expert overview of the art form as it has changed during the years. He explained the intricate details of painting techniques with us. We, than had a hands-on experience to paint with the maestro. There are lots of patterns to choose from as he typically follows Mughal miniature form. He was passionate with us and gave us insight into even the minutest detail. It was an amazing experience and to understand art’s history. He even signed my painting and I’ll have a keepsake for home! The experience was just wow! I highly recommended this.

    Rajasthan Studio is doing a great job by letting us learn from award-winning artist and know more about the art form. Padmashree Shakir Ali Ji was a beautiful experience. He taught us many painting techniques as well as he also signed on the painting that I made. I will keep it safe forever. Thank you so much, Shakir Ali Sir and Rajasthan Studio for making this happen
