Madhubani Painting is a folk-art of Bihar, India. It is said that it dates back to the times of Ramayana, when during the marriage ceremony of Ram - Sita, Raja (king) Janak asked the artists of Mithilanchal (Maithili speaking region) to paint the entire kingdom in an art which showcased the culture of the community, expressed love and celebration. And hence Madhubani Painting ( also called Mithila Painting) came to life. This widely appreciated art-form has seen many changes, but stood firm, true to its root, and still evolving.
Born and brought up in Bihar, I consider myself fortunate to learn this art directly from the artists practicing it over generations.
Welcome to the world of FOLK-ART, and you are now going to witness a glimpse of the rich heritage of India.
