Reviving folk culture through his art – Suvigya Sharma


Miniature paintings 


Miniature painting is a genre of art that focuses on paintings, sculptures, and engravings that date back to the historical era. The folk culture is conveyed through this art form. It contributes to the preservation of our history and culture. 


Suvigya proudly states that his paintings are inspired by the miniature art form which is the oldest art form in the world. Every piece of his derived from the history and roots of India. Through his art, he is trying to revive the Rajasthani folk culture which is full of grandeur and authenticity. His paintings are intricate and detailed and are amalgamated with his own style to adorn them with distinctive features. Suvigya commented that inspiration can arise from anywhere. Anything we see or feel becomes a source of inspiration. He has grown up around art and that naturally created an artistic instinct in him. Dating back a few years, he saw the need of reviving this miniature art form as it was a beautiful part of our history and it had to be talked about even today. With this goal running in his veins, Suvigya dedicated years to again infuse life into this precious long lost artwork. Today, he is majestically carrying the lineage ahead by bringing out exemplary pieces every now and then. 


As Suvigya mentions that behind the scenes is the actual factor. He adds that the process behind the scene is continuous and long. The audience only views the beguiling output and devours the beauty of it. The process starts with the ideation and an empty canvas. It takes a concept and meticulous observation to bring out an intricate piece. It takes a considerable amount of time to curate the painting as every little detail has to be elegantly portrayed. Suvigya shares that the artwork may take time from 10 days to 6 months depending on the intricacies and aesthetics of the piece which is worked upon. It takes the utmost focus and sheer dedication to bring out a masterpiece. The process is long and difficult but while admiring the outcome, it seems that the blood and sweat have beautifully paid off.
