Plethora of Celebrations

Plethora of Celebrations, Fiesta Series :

plethora of celebrations-min

Every painting is a reflection of artist’s mind and soul to the canvas! And this was created in a day after I had a wonderful trip back from Prague.

I still relish this memory how I won an online competition in 2014 with 750 votes on facebook with all ur support on Handmade N Beyond.Thoughts flow-in when you utter “Holi Carnival” & one can see the plethora of celebrations in my one-of-a-kind painting.

Thoughts that struck me to create this fusion : Holi means colours, Carnival means festivals. And I came to a conclusion that I’m gonna make a fusion painting of different festivals combined to form one Story : Colours => Festivals => Happiness.
One can find the following in the above painting : Holi Festival- Festival of Colours, Carnival – Masks, Rajasthan’s Desert Festival Dance by a multicoloured dressed girl, Govinda (breaking the pot- can be seen above the rangoli) during Krishna Janmashtami, Christmas’ Stars, Mehndi is usually a pre-marriage festival celebrating with a bride and her family, friends, Elephant Festival of Jaipur, Durga Puja, Lantern Festival of China, Dragon Boat Festival of China, Dussehra-Festival of Lights (Can be seen with the Ravana burning by an arrow, Crackers on the sky and with karthigai deepams) & Village Festival in India (One can see the Ferris Wheel, Kids with balloons, Shops).

All these are interlinked by a common name “FESTIVAL”, which in turn spreads happiness and living with our tradition. We all assure to make these live for all Generations.
