Introducing Neo Bengal Folk Art - a modern take on Bengal Pattachitra, inspired by Jamini Roy's work. My Illustrations feature thick and thin outlines, vivid colors, and intricate motifs. I aim to bridge the gap between the old and new, honouring our cultural heritage and pushing the boundaries of creativity.
Blessings Hanuman
Panchamukhi Hanaman
In the Ramayana battle from Hindu mythology, Mahiravana, the brother of the rakshasa king Ravana, captured and took Lord Rama and his brother Lakshmana to the underworld. To kill Mahiravana, Hanuman had to extinguish five mystical lamps at once. 

Hanuman took the Panchamukha form, with Hanuman, Hayagriva, Narasimha, Garuda, and Varaha faces, and successfully extinguished the lamps. Mahiravana died immediately after, and Hanuman rescued the unconscious Lord Rama and Lakshmana from a magic spell.

Sindoor Hanuman
Sindoor is a vermilion red or orange-red powder from India traditionally worn by married women along their hairline. Hanuman asked Sita about the sindoor mark on her forehead, which she explained was a sign of love for Ram. Hanuman wondered how much sindoor he would need to show his love for Ram. He decided to color his entire body with sindoor, leading to the vermilion red coloration of Hanuman images in temples, and called as Sindoor Hanuman.
