Project

In my recent work I am commenting on the royal life style of Mughal’s using gouache and tea wash techniques. To contemporaries the traditional style of miniature painting he explored new technique called pointillism.
I am using ethnic jewelry and figures to show Mughal’s wealth and their luxurious life. I am comparing their life style with my own life and society. The luxurious aspect of Mughal’s inspires me more to repaint and treat figures and jewelry, Cause I am missing this ethnic attitude in my life and society.
