Mural paintings that will be displayed at State Art Gallery

Kerala style mural paintings capture the rich heritage of artistic traditions and reveal the well-defined principles, practices and techniques for paintings throughout the state. Subjects and themes vary across the large pantheon of Hindu Gods and Goddesses drawn from the descriptions of scriptures and texts. Kerala murals are a stylised art form characterised by the simplicity of subjects, technical excellence, bold but delicate strokes, bright and beautiful colours.

The exhibition will display some of the rare and important murals from the seventeenth and eighteenth century and earlier when mural tradition flourished and was at its peak.

The exhibition will be inaugurated on October 8 at 11 am by Padmasree awardee Jagdish Mittal. The event will also see poet Narender Rai Srivastav, heritage activist M Vedakumar, Nizam’s Museum curator D Bhaskar Rao and others.
