For a long time it has been my dream that I should have an independent website featuring the Sohrai and Khovar painting and presenting it with its background in the early past and the middle and the present, so that people interested in the art might be able to get a glimpse of what we have done and are doing. In the course of this, the idea came to make a website for sale of paintings and it became eminently possible to highlight the art through the story of its journey and at the same time be able to present the paintings in the economic value which has been created by the series of exhibitions around the world. This kind of website is good for two reasons, one that it can familiarize people with the actual perspective of the art in its natural and unpolished reality, and secondly that it might be able to show as in international mural residencies the scale to which finesse may be brought to the naieve and simple village art. The added advantage of the project has been that a document is created for posterity and becomes a historical record in the digital space from where it can be used for the purposes of illustrating the journey of the history of the project- Khovar and Sohrai paintings of Hazaribagh descended from the rockart tradition of the Damodar valley in Jharkhand. In my opinion this is a unique project and a unique opportunity for those in search of excellence to see and analyse it. It would not be surprising therefore that in the process of appreciation several interested admirers may find paintings which they would like to buy and put up in their homes and offices.
