Wall art Madhya Pradesh

India is abundant in art & craft. Traces of art & paintings are found at every corner and every little village in India. People in the smallest to the busiest cities are busy finding a way to decorate their homes or express themselves through the medium of art. I'm always on the look out for wall paintings. Here I feature folk wall paintings of Madhya Pradesh. I don't know what these are called... but they are found mostly on the outside of homes & courtyards. A closer look... Can you spot the below bird in the first picture.
These are pictures from inside a hotel in Amarkantak, Madhya Pradesh. I'd love to try and paint one of these.


  1. I'd done a few of those kind of paintings during the school days. It's fun and was always great to hear the words of appreciation from my teacher! Beautiful photos!
