about the video

Jaykumar Shankar does hand-painting on black-and-white pictures. The art form is currently considered niche. It was in mass production and patronised by the royal families during the nineteenth century but gradually faded out of fashion with the advent of color photography. Now, art connoisseurs, researchers and collectors occasionally commission work to Shankar’s tribe.
