 World renowned Indian Miniature artist Suvigya Sharma unveils 127 artworks at his art show ‘Reminiscence’ at the Kamalnayan Bajaj Art Gallery in Mumbai, today. The artist showcases the 2000-year-old art form, incorporated in pichhwais, Refined Tanjore's, Piqua’s & Life-Like Portraits, featuring miniature art in the form of pichhwais and mythological paintings on vintage stamp papers guilded in 24 Carat gold.

The highlights of the show are Shrinath Ji's Contemporary Pichhwais and Lord Krishna holding a 3 Dimensional Govardhan Parvat. Pichhwai are devotional pictures found on cloth or paper which portray Lord Krishna. The painting is a celebratory reminiscence depicting the supernatural act of Lord Krishna's eighth avatar- Lord Vishnu lifting Govardhan Parvat for 7 Days and Nights. This is as per the Hindu mythological story wherein the God of Heavens - Indra calls Samavartaka clouds for devastation to lash upon Vrindavan with torrents of rain and thunderstorms and cause extensive floods that would destroy the livelihood of the inhabitants. ‘Reminiscence’ is an epic saga, highlighting the Hindu pantheon and its timeless grace that sets the foundation for the aesthetics of modern contemporary art, worldwide.

The Pichhwais are made on ‘Elfh’ a patented mineral-based composition, a great substitute for Elephant Tusk or Ivory, prohibiting the use of natural bones. Painted in freshly prepared vegetable dyes, the artwork is gilded in 24-carat gold, reinstating the disciplines of “Bardashat ka Kaam” meaning the ‘Art of Tolerance’ as the technique is meticulously practiced under a Magnifying glass.

“Miniature paintings originated in India around 750 A.D and art is the base of all other painting art forms that have evolved in the contemporary art world over time. As one of the very few artists nurturing this art form, my constant endeavour is to take my artwork to modern chomes, so that the newer generations would be able to reminisce Indian culture and heritage”, says Suvigya. Suvigya is the world’s most disciplined miniature artist, to have practiced Traditional fine miniature art under the lineage of his father the legendary Fine Artist Mr. R. K. Sharma, descending from the masters of Nathdwara Shaili Miniature paintings. “The great news is that globally, every household that loves curating art likes to have pichhwais. The Govardhan parbat has a contemporary look in spite of being traditional in its concept and art form. The idea is to nurture this art and proliferate the legacy of indian art across the world. During my meeting with our Prime Minister, Narendra Modiji, he extended complete support to my cause and that has been my greatest inspiration. The aim is to create an art ecosystem for the weaker sections of the society through training and skill development”, he added.


The artist is known for creating some of the world’s most sophisticated and valuable personal collections, which are found in the residences of the most elite and respectable families globally including  Honourable. PM Shri Narendra Modi, the Ambanis, the Birlas, the Piramals and celebrities like Justin Bieber, Rani Mukherjee, Kangana Ranaut, Sachin Tendulkar and Sanjay Dutt.
