About the Artist
Kanhaiya Sharma comes from a hard-working middle-class family living in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. From a very young age, he was attracted towards this concept, this phenomenon of Art. There was no particular major event or any life-changing incident which drove him to become an artist. He learned to use a paintbrush before he learned how to ride a bicycle. Painting and sculpting was his childhood hobby which later on, as time went by transformed into a habit, then became his passion and now – a career.
From the Artist – ‘Art is a way of communication, a way to express yourself, a way to present your thoughts, your emotions, it is a way of living. And the people who do so are known as the Artists. I think this realization is what made and still makes me do what I do and I love what I do’
Inspiration and concentration are never too far away in the studio which is filled with tools, references, raw materials as well as finished pieces. Just get in, listen, observe and get lost in the meditation that is art.
About Miniature Painting
Miniature Paintings of Rajasthan developed in the 16th Century and depict the incredibly detailed enchanting visual narratives of royal festivities or mythological stories. Drawn on paper or sometimes ivory, the miniatures were painted with extremely delicate brushes made by inserting just a few strands of squirrels’ tail hair into bird feathers. The paintings are small in size, but they are extremely detailed and elaborate and this requires a high degree of skill and experience. In the intricate design, there is no way to hide even a small brushstroke gone wrong.
