ART AND THE ARTIST

This is photographed in a festival with a difference took place in a small tribal art village in West Bengal, India. The occupants of the village organized a festival to celebrate the success of local painters in reviving the village heritage. These people are a unique tribe of folk painters who sing stories as they paint on long scrolls. During the festival, the painters demonstrate how they make natural colors from leaves, grass, flowers, and even soot. Visitors will also get to experience cultural performances, traditional food, and accommodation in village homes and rooftops. A memorable experience for sure!
