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

This geometric Madhubani in celebratory colours depicts the test of piercing a fish’s eye in Draupadi’s swayamvara (a practice in ancient India, where a girl chose a husband from a list of suitors). In the Mahabharata, many strong and brave princes attended Draupadi’s swayamvara but failed to perform the near-impossible task of shooting a revolving golden fish. One of the Pandavs, Arjuna, who was an accomplished archer, easily shot the fish straight in the eye and won Draupadi’s hand in marriage.

Madhubani style of painting originated as wall painting, moving on to find representation on paper and canvas. Originally only women participated in this style of painting, adorning the walls of homes and palaces. The technique came to light in the outside world during the Indo-Nepal earthquake of 1934 when the houses of Mithila tumbled down, exposing the paintings on their walls. A British officer discovered these Madhubani paintings and introduced them to the world. 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

37-year-old Manjri Das was born and grew up in Bihar and has been painting Madhubanis since the past twenty years. A humanities graduate, she is also a paper mache artist. Her forte, however, is Madhubani art for which she has received Haryana State Award twice—once in 2008 and also in 2010.
