About Manjri Madhubani Arts, Haryana

Manjri Madhubani Arts

 

Award-winning Madhubani painter Manjri Das established her own banner, ‘Manjri Madhubani Arts’ in 1995. An ardent devotee of Krishna, Manjri has been combining her passion for painting and her love for the deity to paint tales of the dark-complexioned god, from an early age. Her style of choice was Madhubani, which she continues to execute with brush and pen nib.

What started purely as passion soon grew into a business idea after people started to notice her talent and recognise her skills. Having grown up in Bihar, she took to the regional art of Madhubani painting easily, though her skills were further honed with a year-long training at an art school in her state during her youth.

Manjri started with painting on paper, slowly moving on to cloth and canvas. She also paints on walls to stunning effect. Her skills have been recognised even in her adopted state of Haryana, where she moved after her marriage. Recipient of Haryana State Award in 2008 and 2010, Manjri innovates constantly, churning out paintings on a wide range of subjects and media under her banner today.

MORE ABOUT THE ARTWORK

The artist has brought alive a lush garden with great dexterity in this black and white sketch, in which lords and ladies are out on a walk. The scene, replete with a peacock and other fauna, oozes charm and richness in spite of the absence of colours and took 5-7 days to complete.

It was a common practice to decorate walls caked with mud or cow dung with Madhubani art. Apart from tales of deities, fertility rites and ceremonies were a favourite subject among the painters. In modern times, the art is propagated to a wide range of rural folk as a means of livelihood for them, since awareness and demand for these paintings have spread the world over.
