Walls without adornments are mere partitions and what could be a better way to embellish them than with one of the most primitive art forms of India, born in the 16th century during the rule of the Nayakas and the Marathas, in the southern part of India.
Tanjore paintings were primarily made to depict different Indian deities and rulers. However, this painting form has evolved over the years into a more creative one and is expanding its domain to figurative and landscapes.
It can be creatively used to give a very contemporary look to a setup by bringing in a flavor of fusion culture between the west and the east.
Did you Know that use of this art is no more restricted to the beautification of walls but has found its way into the apparel designing and fashion accessories segments. Prints of Tanjore paintings are being used on bag, accessories and clothes.
The DeZire collection of Art Jewellery boasts of some exclusive Tanjore Jewellery sets which makes a big fashion statement if clubbed with Indian or Arabic traditional wear.
An eye for beauty and the craze for exclusivity made this art-form claim its unique place in the global platform.
