Gaatha Exhibition Bengaluru | Story of Indian crafts and craftsmen

Handicrafts of India

अभिनन्दन from Gaatha

Gaatha project was originally conjured only for researching and documenting the rapid erosion of Indian craft clusters and heritage. However, we soon learnt from the artisans themselves that need was not to do research alone, but to restore ‘pride and serious commercial opportunity’ in their ecosystem. Today Gaatha thus aims to bring the lost respect and wealth back to these beautiful and aesthetically rich Indian handicraft clusters. These researches are important because just like Industrial goods sell on ‘features’, crafts sell on the processes / stories / heritage that go into making them.

We should give crafts a fair chance, someone is right now merrily making something for us, singing a folk song, in a humble house, deep inside India.

Exclusive Painting Exhibition / Sale { First floor }

Pichwai Painting | Trilok Soni
Trilok Prakash Soni has made a niche but global following/market for his Shrinathji and Dwarkadheesh paintings. Besides catching the attention of numerous devotees around the world, he has secured national and international achievements including the National Award, acknowledging his contribution. More than three exhibitions of his works were conducted and conducted a workshop and demonstration on Pichwai paintings at international venues like Spring Fair in Birmingham in 2016 and at the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia. Some of his remarkable works are installed at the International Airport – T2, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Mumbai and at the notable private houses such as the Adani house in Ahmedabad and many private and institutional venues. His other achievements include a workshop and
demonstration on Pichwai Paintings in the Crafts Museum, New Delhi; a solo show at the Lalit Kala Academy, Rabindra Bhawan in New Delhi and the Indian House of Art Gallery in Pune.

Devotees and connoisseurs, warmly welcomed this fresh perspective, especially the prestigious Ambani family, Mr. Amit Shah’s family and many other reputed art aficionados. Exhibition inauguration and a book on the same subject was released by the chief minister of Gujarat, Mr. Vijay Rupani.

Mata ni pachedi | Kirit Chitara
Mata ni pachedi literally means “behind the mother goddess”, and is a cloth that constitutes a temple of the goddess. When people of the nomadic Vaghari community of Gujarat were barred from entering temples, they made their own shrines with depictions of the Mother Goddess on cloth. This ingenuous solution is believed to be the origin of Mata ni Pachedi, the sacred art, which is now revered by all.

Whether it is the richly decorated with gold Pichwai paintings of Nathdwara, or the folk art of Mata ni Pachedi, Hindus have always decorated their temples and shrines with narrative illustrations that depict stories of the gods and goddesses.
