Indian art has evolved from the hinterlands and has remained immortal in the annals of history. The rock painting that was discovered in Bhimbhetka and other places are known to exist from pre-historic times. Some of them even go back to the late 5500 BC, while some are even older. The Indian paintings are the great sinews of beauty, art and culture. it clearly points out that Indians never waited for the canvas while expressing emotion. The mother nature was their canvas. The colours used for expressing thoughts were prepared from minerals. The tradition of painting in India is therefore as old and varied as the land itself. Started since the prehistoric times, traditional painting in India gained dimension with time. The different forms of traditional painting in India are therefore vivid and lively, bold and vigorous whilst reflecting the refined and sophisticated artistry of Indian painting. Some traditional paintings like Warli, Madhubani and Patachitra are globally commended.

You are absolutely right Chetan. Medium is not bar in art. We are already equipped with multiple art techniques and art mediums. Indian art is not limited to only watercolor painting or oil painting in terms of painting, only sketching or drawing with pencil in terms of sketch or making sculpture using stone or wood in terms of sculpture. It is more than that. Artists use multiple methods, processes or means of expression to state their points. What would you imagine when it comes to painting? Multiple colors on canvas How is it to paint complete canvas with one shade without using any normal pigment or color? There are such distinct art forms including Sand Painting, Clay or Ceramic Painting, Indian Mural art, Digital art, Fax Art, Crop Art or Coffee Painting. Sand painting is made of sand, Clay or Ceramic Painting is made clay or ceramic, Indian Mural art is made of natural pigments and vegetable colors, crop art is made of seeds and coffee painting is made of pure coffee. Leaving canvas a side, artists also think of creating art on wall, vehicles, rock or stone, wood, bamboo or water. Mural art, Auto Art & Truck Painting in India, Bamboo art of Asia, Rock Art of Africa & Asia, Caves Paintings of Asia, Paper Art and art on wooden art such incredible art styles. In terms of sculpture Ice sculpture, Sand sculpture, Sculpture made out of throw away products and Megalithic Art refers to the use of large stones as an artistic medium are also addition to sculpture mediums. Street Art any art developed in public spaces becomes nice art visit by everyone who passes from street. It defies rule of owning art by individual. Promoting art is now no more limited to four wall closed galleries. To attract more visitors exhibitions are now being held on plasma screen making digital show of any art. Open public show in gardens is good for sculptures and such giant work. Tribal art such as Art of African Tribal Mask is distinct art medium to express historical saga and cultural beliefs. Installation art is art that uses sculptural materials and other media to modify the way we experience a particular space. Materials used in contemporary installation art range from everyday and natural materials to new media such as video, sound, performance, computers and the internet. Kite Art a kite is a flying tethered man-made object is famous art in Asian countries. From smaller to bigger flying objects are made to fly in sky. There is no other way to make sky beautiful then flying varieties of kits in sky.

Folk and tribal art in India takes on different manifestations through varied medium such as pottery, painting, metalwork, paper-art, weaving and designing of objects such as jewelery and toys. Often puranic gods and legends are transformed into contemporary forms and familiar images. Fairs, festivals, and local deities play a vital role in these arts. It is an art where life and creativity are inseparable. The tribal arts have a unique sensitivity, as the tribal people possess an intense awareness very different from the settled and urbanized people. Their minds are supple and intense with myth, legends, snippets from epic, multitudinous gods born out of dream and fantasy. Their art is an expression of their life and holds their passion and mystery. Folk art also includes the visual expressions of the wandering nomads. This is the art of people who are exposed to changing landscapes as they travel over the valleys and highlands of India. They carry with them the experiences and memories of different spaces and their art consists of the transient and dynamic pattern of life. The rural, tribal and arts of the nomads constitute the matrix of folk expression. The Taj Mahal built by the Indian Mughal Muslims.The folk spirit has a tremendous role to play in the development of art and in the overall consciousness of indigenous cultures.

Art is the expression of mankind.It dosent need any language and specific media.Before the use of script man use pictures for conveying their ideas and messages,from the pictography the scripts were evoloved.In ancient times people paint and carve on stone,logs,bones,animal hide,rocks etc.They decorated their tools and weapons and the dark interior of the caves with beautiful scenes and pictures that taken from his surroundings and his day to day life.Then he crave sculptures,monuments etc.The best specimen for Prihistoric art is Bhimbetka,Ajanta for Paintings,Ellora for monuments.When we came across the ornaments ,we find the fabulos designs.The different types of potterries,bear the different patterns of designs shows the art.The Palaces ,Forts,Towns,Religious monuments also proudly stand as the art specimen.The decorations made on the face of performings artist of Kathakali,Theyam etc shows that face also a medium for the expression of art.The Tatoos were used to decorate the body. Not only on India but the whole people of the world doesn t need a specific canvas for the expression of ART.

Since pre-historic times, men have expressed their thoughts and artistic sense through paintings on the cave walls and rocks. The beautiful paintings of Ajanta and Ellora are an answer to this. One will also find cave paintings in some caves in the Kaimur Range of Central India, Vindhya Hills and some places in Uttar Pradesh. Many a times, leaves were used as the medium to draw different figures, etc. Bhimbetka is said to be the site of pre-historic art, some 40 kilometers south of Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, central India. This is a deeply forested area with some 50 to 60 hillocks, where rock paintings can be seen. It is believed that the paintings are 20,000 to 50,000 years old. The hillocks are made of sandstone and the paintings on the rocks are in red, green and white colors in all shades and varieties, and done primarily with a finger. Some experts believe that men at that times used feathers, wooden sticks and needles of porcupines also for various styles and textures. Different paintings of birds and animals, in triangles, rectangles, circles and hexagons were found.

Art doesnt want a medium. it doesnt bother the era,time ,place,age,space etc etc.........From the prehistoric times onwards we can see the art,rock art is much more sophisticated than the paleolithic art,hand impressions, lines and dots.Gradually black lines changed to colours,then filled the outlines with colours,picures got expressions.

yes, rather the question should be different...if you see our old vedas and other sources, one can find out that ART was the main way of life, way of worship and way of thinking....it need not wait for the particular media to express...one can hit you by book if you disturbed him while he is reading...yes and he got an good weapon...after so many civilizations and continuous developments, we made the papers and canvases...YES I DO AGREE THAT WE, THE INDIA HAS GOT HER ARTISTIC EXPRESSION BEFORE THAN ANY OTHERS TILL DATED NOTED...but now, is anybody will be agree that we really kept the same enthu among us that our forefathers did? I think we are following very limited paths to express ourselves artistically...as the safest way...what you asked is correct if, it is about OUR HISTORY...

India Nail Art tells the story of how fingernail drawing art came into being to what it is now from its roots in the imagination of a great Indian classical poet. The authoras late eldest brother, Sampthkumar, created and promoted this art since the early 1950s. The cover picture, aGood and Evila is one of his creations. This booklet describes the spread of nail art from the East to the West through a couple of artists from the Chilakamarri family. The author taught as a professor in the University of Maryland in the hard sciences but exhibited his nail art there and in many other cities and countries. This booklet instructs how to draw with your fingernails beautiful pictures on white art paper without using any other materials. It includes images of exquisite nail art pictures. Witnesses wonder as the nail art drawings are being created pretty much out of thin air but for the fingernails and an art paper.

In reality, there is no need of a canvas for ART. Art is the expression of idea / views and feelings coming out of the person. For the Art you must have imaginative and nature loving mind, you can put it on even a piece of paper with whatever the media you have available with you at that time. Many persons even makes very beautiful things from the waste material.

Indian Art is the visual art produced on the Indian subcontinent from about the 3rd millennium BC to modern times. To viewers schooled in the Western tradition Indian art may seem overly ornate and sensuous appreciation of its refinement comes only gradually as a rule. Voluptuous feeling is given unusually free expression in Indian culture. A strong sense of design is also characteristic of Indian art and can be observed in its modern as well as in its traditional forms.

If we see our old cutures and monuments one can find that there is no need of any particular medium for art. Art is just an expression and feelings coming out of persons. Art lover or artist use any medium for expression of their ideas. As we are moving toward the mordenisation we gradually change our medium but never being limited to canvas.

India is the land of culture, traditions and religions and for representing our culture we are taking help from artworks. Art is a form to convey your ideas and emotions. You can express in the form of painting, status and sculpture. In ancient era, most of the people used artworks and sculptures to convey message to others.

Indian art market has seen major positive changes over the years. Usually the art market has comprised of galleries, dealers and auction houses. The main limitations of all these 3 channels of trade were restricted access, lack of transparency and high entry barrier. With the introduction of the internet all three started settling to the online medium. While this addresses the issue of access to a large extent lack of transparency price on demand high entry barrier are still problem areas that persist. Now Indian Art Market is changing itself to Online Art Market. Selling art online has become a boon for so many artists provided artists partner with the right platforms engage constructively and participate in this online dialogue. They will indeed benefit greatly from this digital revolution.

In India, Art has a different meaning. It does not need any specific medium. Artists here are just do it just effortless and are evolved just from a basic material to a higher grade product. We can display the art without a canvas. It obvious if you see our famous artists. Amazing arts just on a piece of paper.
