Join us for about 1:30 – 2 hours at Kunzum Travel Cafe to get to know more about Folk Phad Painting from the artisan itself. Listen to stories by Shankar Lal Bhopa and get enchanted into their world.
Phad art is a style of religious-folk painting made on a piece of cloth that resembles a large scroll. Phad in local dialect means fold and this is used as a canvas to depict various episodes from the life of local deities, mainly Pabuji and Devnarayan. Lord Devnarayan is believed to be the incarnation of Hindu god Vishnu and Pabuji, the incarnation of Laxman (brother of lord Rama).
This art form is more than seven hundred years old and this style of painting is mainly done by Joshi families of Bhilwara district in Rajasthan. Long time ago, Chochu Bhat, a profound devotee of Lord Devnarayan commissioned the Joshi family to illustrate the entire life of the folk-deity on Phad. From then onwards, Joshi families have become the traditional torchbearers of this art form.
