These beautiful artworks below are breath-taking examples of the traditional Indian art form commonly called “Rangoli”. You can find out more about rangoli here. Also called Kolam, Mandana, Chowkpurana, Alpana, Aripana, Chowk pujan, Muggu, Golam kolam or kalam, it is a very popular form of folk art. These artists though, have elevated it far beyond its more modest, homely origins.
Just look at them and imagine using coloured powders and your fingers to create something this beautiful…..
The unfortunate smudges made by people unwilling to believe these were truly Rangoli only serve to impress the ephemeral nature of art and the sheer brilliance of the artists who created these.
