Madhubani Art (or Mithila painting) is a style of Indian paintings, practiced in the Mithila region of India and Nepal. It was named after Madhubani District of Bihar, India which is where it originated. This painting is done with various tools, such as fingers, twigs, brushes, nib-pens, and matchsticks and using natural dyes and pigments. It is characterized by its eye-catching geometrical patterns. There is ritual content for particular occasions, such as birth or marriage, and festivals, such as Holi, Surya Shasti, Kali Puja, Upanayana, and Durga Puja.
Madhubani painting (Mithila painting) was traditionally created by the women of various communities in the Mithila region of the Indian subcontinent. It originated from Madhubani district of the Mithila region of Bihar. Madhubani is also a major export center of these paintings. This painting as a form of wall art was practiced widely throughout the region; the more recent development of painting on paper and canvas mainly originated among the villages around Madhubani, and it is these latter developments that led to the term "Madhubani art" being used alongside "Mithila Painting."
Born in 1947, Vidya Nath Jha who is 78 now, is one of the most famous Madhubani painters. He learnt his art from his elder sister Bachcho Devi when he was 20, and practices Godhna and Tantrik styles of painting. He was a guru in Nabard Bank’s training initiative and has also trained SGH members on Madhubani Painting.
His son Krishna Prasad Jha is a state awardee in Kalanand Art Contest of Prafulla Dahanukar Art Foundation in 2016. They hail from Madhubani district. Both father and son have conducted many workshops before, including last year in Pune.The whole family practices the art from ages. They have done 10 workshops so far and have also done a commissioned wall painting in an International school in Pune.
