Mithila painting is the oldest form of painting recorded on Earth. Legend has it that Janak, the King of Mithila, had a daughter Sita out of Mother earth. When Sita got married to Lord Rama, Raja Janak got whole of his kingdom decorated with description of nature, earth, faith, joy & luck in natural colours made from flowers, turmeric, goat milk etc. These depictions later took the form of paintings. Continuing the ancient tradition, the women of Mithila still paint walls in different themes associated with nature, especially during weddings. That the women of Mithila can create this unique folk art on hand made papers, walls, clothes and different decor items, is due to their inborn talent.

ABOUT SHOP OWNER
Hi ! I am Alka , wife of an officer in the prestigious Indian Army. I am a self learnt Indian folk artist aspiring to become a Mithila artist . Currently I am doing 6 months professional certificate course in Mithila painting with the prestigious National Institute of Mithila Art , Darbhanga. I love mixing traditional patterns and motifs with modern elements in my paintings. I started Madhubani painting in 2009 as a means to meditative painting and as a way to deal with stress . I draw inspiration from mythology, Indian folk tales and day to day lives. Fish, trees and birds are the central characters in most of my paintings. I love exploring various techniques on a variety of media, from oil and acrylic paints on canvas, to pen and watercolour on paper. I enjoy practising various Indian art forms in Madhubani painting itself namely kachni, bharni and godna.
