Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

A visual treat to anyone who lays his/her eyes on it, Phad is a form of scroll painting which has, over the centuries, narrated stories to people in village gatherings. These stories — of deities Devnarayanji, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, and Pabuji, a local hero — would be narrated by priest-singers called Bhopas and Bhopis, who would carry these paintings with them.

In a dramatic unfolding of scenes, the narrators would un-scroll every fold, or Phad — as it is called in the local language — amid a large gathering of people after the sunset, and reveal parts of their story. Phad, therefore, is a kind of narrative storytelling in which two communities played a role — the artistes and the narrators.
