Description:

The beautiful Kalamkari painting exalts the great legacy of this genre of painting centred around Andhra Pradesh in Central India. The painting depicts the great Kurukshetra battle fought between dharma and evil forces. It was fought between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. Lord Krishna was helping his friend Arjuna in the battle that led to the triumph of the Pandavas. An ancient and exquisite art work of painted and printed fabrics, Kalamkari literally means pen work. This art form is hand painted and block printed with the use of vegetable dyes. With a glorious history of more than 3000 years, this Indian art has evolved over time and and this legacy has been handed down from generation to generation. A kalamkari painting goes through a vigorous process of resist dyeing and hand printing. Kalamkari painting goes through a lot of treatment before and after the painting is done on the fabric. The colours change depending on the treatment of cloth and quality of the mordant. Every step in the process is painstakingly done and with perfection. Kalamkari paintings have a flourishing market in and outside of India. The kalamkari art for sale is available in leading exhibitions that showcase and promote Indian handicrafts.
