A Padma Shri for Bhuri Bai, the first woman artist from the Bhil community to paint on paper

“As one browses through the online exhibition, My Life as an Artist, on the website of The Museum of Art & Photography (MAP), the eye comes to rest on one particular painting. It is an untitled work, made with poster colour on paper. A part of its appeal lies in the sheer simplicity with which the artist has brought a story from her childhood to life. The imagery is extremely arresting with the use of primary colours and human forms embellished with tightly placed dots.”
