Originated in the Mithila region of Northern India, Mithila art was primarily practised by rural women deriving scenes from both religious stories and their daily lives. Done on paper, cloth or even walls using natural colors originally now moving to acrylic colors, Madhubani Paintings are versatile in their creation.
About the writer Riddhimaa Sinha, graduating from high school in June 2019–The process of creating these paintings is carefully orchestrated, and deliberate multi-step process. Amidst the homework, projects and various other engagements of student life, the practise of this art served us as focal point. Another facet of my art journey has been the regular display of artwork. Over the course of my artistic career, I have had the honor of displaying my work at Museum of Fine Arts- Boston, Lokvani and other local exhibitions. Watching people leisurely observing each painting, inquiring about what each shape or color means, has been a rewarding experience. Furthermore, I have received the Rising Star in Art Award by Lokvani and a certificate of Congressional recognition, some of the opportunities that were realized due to my pursuit of this art.
