Desi Art: Saree Art

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

I've been reading a lot of Indian wedding blogs lately (my lil sis is getting married next year) and for some reason I've become obsessed with helping her 'design' her wedding. Needless to say, I have been looking at a lot of gorgeous wedding sarees and then happened to come across these fantastic paintings of women in sarees by Bangalore artist Usha Shantharam. These prints are rich in colour and so much texture. I could definitely see them hanging in my home. You can read about Usha on her blog here and purchase her prints here.
This is my absolute favourite. I love that I can't see their faces yet these women seem so familiar. I want this one for myself.  Women in Sarees print by Usha available here.
"Coy Print" is another gorgeous piece. I love the colours in this one. Can you imagine these gallery framed on your wall. Available here.
"Couple Ride on Bike" is another fun print. Love the blue with pop of orange. Available here.
