A Few Words About the Art of Bengal Illustrations
Our award-winning artists at DrawHipo have drawn the Art of Bengal Illustrations by drawing inspiration mainly from the pioneering Indian artist Jamini Roy’s paintings. Jamini Roy, in turn, was most inspired by the Kalighat Patchitra (Kalighat painting). The charm of the folk tradition of Kalighat paintings is that they captured the essence of daily life.
The unique features of the figures in the Kalighat paintings are round faces, big almond-shaped eyes, and curvy bodies with firm contours. Being fascinated by this simple and beautiful style, Jamini Roy started focussing on rural India, especially the culture of the Santhal tribe of Bengal. Though his paintings started reflecting the same art style, he also added his own flavor and characteristics to them.
Jamini Roy’s other sources of inspiration were terracotta temple sculptures of Bishnupur, traditions of Bengal arts and crafts, etc.
As you can see in our Art of Bengal Illustrations pack, we’ve portrayed the lifestyle of Santhals, influenced by the way Jamini Roy painted scenes featuring their lives.
While capturing rural Bengal’s everyday life, he painted seated women, women engaged in their daily chores, mother and child figures, bauls. The ones that most powerfully captured the middle-class common people of his times were housewives, feminine images of gopinis, pujarinis, and mothers.
The other subjects of his paintings were the imagery of epics and mythology. Similarly, we present a beautiful and powerful illustration of Goddess Durga.
Now let’s talk about some of the specialties or characteristics of Jamini Roy’s paintings.
- Use of seven vibrant and earthy colors – Indian red, vermillion, yellow ochre, cadmium green, blue, grey, and white
- Flat color application
- Dark-lined bold brush-strokes
- Human anatomy with fluid geometry, unlike the proper anatomical drawing in European Arts
Keeping these things in mind, we have developed an art style that resembles Jamini Roy’s.
Additionally, we’ve also covered the ‘Babu culture,’ without which the depiction of the art of Bengal would have been incomplete.
