Sneak Peak and some new ideas...

Colours bring life alive. Like the elements, colors are omnipresent. And it is this reality that has inspired many over the years. It has been part of our culture, heritage and life. The 9 colours of Navrang are a manifestation of this idiom. They have been rooted in Indian tradition.

Design5 Studio endeavours to bring this alive through decoupage. This collection is inspired by Indian visual folk arts like Gond art of Madhya Pradesh, Pichwai and Phad of Rajasthan. Even motifs from Jamini Roy's work that itself borrows heavily from folk life have been used to add its own twist to the tale. They conspire to form a unique melange of years of tradition, seen here through the lens of modernity and decoupage art.


Folk paintings have long been illustrative expressions of village painters, with subjects ranging from our epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata, Puranas and every day village life, animals, birds and natural objects to even popular deities and their stories.


I am bringing out a new collection of designs that depict life. People of India. Their events. Occasions. Stories. That have seen time and got richer with it. And the many colours of life. 

In this collection, i have tried to portray each colour not being restricted as a single rasa but interpreted through emotions as varied as the colours and forms they take. Indian folk paintings reflect these colors of Indian culture. As the Indian culture is vivid so is the Indian folk painting.


I call it NavjeevanRang. The nine colours of Life.
