Art in India had always been an integral part of Indian life and excavations of Art objects from historical places have shown that Indian art had reached very high degrees of sophistication at various times in Indian History. Many of the artists in 21st century India use these historical styles in their art. Similarly there are artists who draw their inspiration from the rich Folk traditions of India.
India had always been closely connected with other countries. Influence of these various cultures can be seen in the art of various times. Even today the trend continues as Indian artists remain connected to the trends outside and openly adapt to the emerging European and Oriental styles.
Again while contemporary artists in India take inspiration from various sources and styles, Indian Art still retains its distinct ‘Indianness’.
Being an Indian, I love Indian style of paintings. Indian paintings basically based on lines & colors & moreover its theme. After passing diploma in Fine Arts, I tried to execute my paintings in such a way that it should have some ‘Indianness’.
