About the Event

About the Artform

Pichwai is a Sanskrit word in which ‘pich’ stands for back and ‘wai’ stands for hanging. Pichwai paintings are referred to as Mewar-style textile paintings that are found hanging on the walls of temples, houses, art galleries and museums, specifically Nathdwara temple from where they first originated.

Intricate and visually stunning pichwai paintings made on cloth, depict tales from Lord Krishna's life. It is a very ancient form of art, passed on from generation to generation The purpose of Pichwais, other than its artistic appeal, is to narrate tales of Krishna to the illiterate.
