Communication and Self-expression through Folk Art

“Everyday people creating extraordinary works of art—this is the basis of folk art. Folk art relies on experience, community, and heritage rather than formal training. It is art that is felt rather than taught. Deeply rooted in tradition, folk art is an artist’s feelings, ideas, expressions, and customs brought to life.”

HANUMAN'S RAMAYAN
Author: Devdutt Pattanaik, Illustrator: Nancy Raj

Valimiki completes his grand epic ‘Ramayan’ and realises that he has competition when Sage Narad tells him about a better Ramayan that already exists! Valimiki is devastated, but goes in search of this version written by Hanuman. He concludes finally that the story is more powerful than the teller!

MITHILA FOLK ART

We explore Folk Art from the Mithila region of Bihar in India. Mithila Paintings are traditionally created by women for festive occassions like births, weddings etc. It is sometimes an act of worship to create the image! In the Ramayana, Mithila is the birthplace of Sita, the daughter of King Janaka and Rama’s wife. Subscribe to Toka Explorer Gift a Box
