Madhubani or Mithila Painting is a local art form practiced in Bihar, India. This style of painting is done with fingers, twigs, brushes and matchsticks, using natural dyes. It has been traditionally done by women of villages around the present town of Madhubani (the literal meaning of which is forests of honey). These paintings are full of eye catching colors and geometric patterns. They tell stories of all kinds...weddings, festivals, birth of a baby and more.
Wraps

Earthygoods, presented me with an exciting opportunity to work upon some new designs based on these Madhubani paintings, hand-painted by some very talented local artists. These works were inspired by the 'Five Elements' of nature.
Incense Boxes
The colors that i used were bright and attractive. I used motifs from the original Madhubani paintings for creating some new patterns, which were modern and aesthetically appealing.
Fire
Water
Candle Labels
The end result were these amazing sets of designs, which were used as corporate stationery sets, Incense boxes, candle labels and wrapping paper.

Seen any interesting use of Indian Folk art? let me know in the comments section.
