Pichwai paintings are one of the most renowned folk art forms of India. These paintings are very intricate and detail-oriented. Pichwai comes from a Sanskrit word in which 'pich' stands for back and 'wai' stands for textile hanging. The paintings are famous for their incredible portrayal of stories from the life of Lord Krishna.
Madhubani paintings are a type of folk art form famously known in India. Majorly practised by the people in Bihar, one can easily recognize Madhubani painting with its delightful bright colours and geometric shapes.
Gond paintings are a folk art form practised by one of the largest tribes of India, i.e. the Gondi people. The word ‘Gond’ comes from the Dravidian expression ‘Kond’, which means ‘green mountain’. Gond art predominantly originated in Madhya Pradesh but is also popular in regions like Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, and Odisha.
Pattachitra style of painting is one of the oldest and most popular art forms based in the Eastern Indian states of Odisha, West Bengal and parts of Bangladesh. The name Pattachitra has evolved from the Sanskrit word ‘patta’, meaning cloth, and ‘chitra’, meaning picture. Most of these paintings depict stories of Hindu deities.
The royal state of Rajasthan played an important role in the origination of the unique art form of Rajasthani Paintings, in between the late 16th and early 17th Century A.D. A strong Mughal influence can be seen in the Rajasthani Paintings since most of the princely states in Rajasthan were ruled by the Mughals. Evolved with distinct styles, every Rajasthani Kingdom has many similarities and dissimilarities.
One of the oldest forms of art in history, Warli paintings is a form of tribal art that originated in Maharashtra in India and is very popular among the tribal community. This form of art has been created the most by the tribal people in the North Sahyadri Range in Maharashtra. The range includes cities such as Dahanu, Talasari, Jawhar, Palghar, Mokhada, and Vikramgad of Palghar district.
Tanjore paintings are a classical art form that originated in the southern part of India and are named after the town of Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu. Also known as 'Thanjavur paintings', these are easily recognised by their famous gold coating, stones and rich, vivid colours.
Mughal painting is a classical Indian art form and a style of South Asian (particularly North India) miniature painting that usually took the form of book illustrations or single sheets preserved in albums (muraqqa). Mughal art is known for its sophisticated designs and diversity in subjects and themes.

During the first pandemic, ArtSage, an idea came to my mind after thinking about how local artists were suffering during these hard times. Being an artist myself, I can empathise with the struggle an artist has to go through to get their work in the market. If I talk about Indian folk & tribal artists, most of the communities live in the rural section of the country. Due to a lack of resources & support, these artists leave their traditional legacy of art to opt for other jobs. As far as some folk-art forms are concerned, there are only a few families left in the country which pursue them. Simultaneously, the plight of most contemporary artists is far from satisfactory. Because of the ‘more supply and less demand’ scenario, most contemporary artists struggle to get buyers for their artworks.
As an entrepreneur, I dream to see ArtSage realize our vision to bring about a sense of creativity & learning in folk, tribal and contemporary artists in India. We aim to address the need of conserving the rich heritage & bridging the gap between local artists & art enthusiasts.
Art for me is a subtle form of expression. A vision that makes intangible tangible, makes complex subjects seem simple, practical and adaptable
