Harsingh Hamir

An elephant decorated for a special occasion.

Each print is silkscreen-printed by hand on paper recycled from cotton waste. The silkscreen process is a classic technique of printing where layers of ink are transferred onto the surface of paper through mesh screens. The process requires precision and care, each print contains as many layers as it does colours.

 

Read a blog post by Gita Wolf – Pithora Painting and the Coming of Better Times – that explores the work of artists from the indigenous Rathwa tribe from Gujarat and their belief that creating a particular painting—called Pithora—banishes adversity and brings about a change in fortune.
