Description

Madhubani painting, also known as Mithila painting, is rich in art symbolism with a rare simplicity and beauty. Associated with Sita's home in Mithila (Bihar), stories of Ramayana are central to this form of painting. The Krishna lore with its inescapable romance has left its marks as well. Activities of life, ornate floral and geometric patterns, with inevitable Hinduicons forms, its distinctive style.

Shravan Paswan inherits the legacy of his mother Urmila Devi Paswan. Shravan, born at‘Jith var pur’ of Madhubani in 1972, is special for more than one reason as he is spreading the flavour of ‘Madhubani’ art outiside Bihar too. Shravan Paswan belongs to the group of modern male artists who took over the art from the female counterparts. He learnt painting from Padmashree Sita Devi as well. His art works have been on display at ‘Manava Sangrahalaya’ and ‘Delhi Haath’ of New Delhi. This helped Shravan Paswan to get recognition in national as well as international forums.
Apart from India, Shravan Paswan’s ‘Madhubani’ art works are well known Japan, Germany, America, England, France, China, Australia and many other countries. In India, Shravan Kumar Paswanhas exhibited his talent in Mumbai, Kolkata, New Delhi, Kashmir, Kerala, Chennai, Bhopal, Pune and many other cities of the country. He is a known figure in coastal Karnataka also. In 2008, Shravan participated in ‘Alva’s Virasat’at Moodbidri and in 2010 at Koteshwara in ‘National level artists’ workshop’.
