About the Book:

Poetry and proses portrayed in paints is the true connotation of the Folk art of India. Folk paintings from different states reflect the heritage and lifestyles of the rural people in the distant villages of India. Varied in styles, practices, motifs and mediums, it reflects the true essence of the rich culture of our country.

Most of the people of India are unaware of the hard work, imagination and creativity of these artists.One has to travel across the large length and breadth of this country to get glimpses of these traditional forms of art. Hence, it is a humble effort of the author to introduce different folk arts of India, in a compact book form `Eternally Ethnic`.
