I came across Sujith at the Kala Madhyam crafts mela last week and the colours of the Kerala mural art quite swept me off my feet.
They are vibrant and catch the eye from like, a mile away! Looking closer, the mural art which is now painted on wood, bamboo most popularly, is extremely intricate. Fine lines, human contours (or should I say godly contours) traced with delicacy and colored with abandon.
I looked it up and found they are called Kerala mural art (couldn’t quite find a name that signifies it). One of the more popular resources seems to be Suresh Muthukalam’s work.
Sujith paints Kerala murals on bamboo and on framable materials.
Cute things come in small packages and I also loved his art adapted for jewellery!
