PAINTING SYMBOL OF JUNAGARH FORT BIKANER
|Badal Mahal Of Junagarh Fort Bikaner, its in giving rainy Environmental feeling always.|
Here I want to share a right symbol of painting. Yes, our city fort is a real symbol of painting . our city history is 525 years old, but here you can see painting in gold . In this fort you can see every where paintings on walls that is design format of Mugal and Traditional Rajasthani painting mixture . painting on wall and on doors of fort . In this fort artist and designer was created environmental painting for feeling of environment in different environment of nature.

For Example I want to share with you a picture of that fort room , that room name is BADAL MAHAL it mean room of clouds. Inside of that room designer and painter was painted walls of that room in sky blue color with form of clouds . when we enter in Badal Mahal in that movement that room environment is giving some cold feeling to eyes and mind in summer environment . it was a magic of painters .
Here In Bikaner A very great art master H . K. Mullar was painted lots of paintings in this fort for MAHARAJA of Bikaner . that historical paintings is exhibit in Junagarh fort . Today that paintings and traditional wall paintings are inspiring to visitors and art researchers .

In my view our city Fort Junagarh is a symbol of paintings ,because when I think about traditional art and craft work, our city fort Junagarh is coming very first in my view ,as a symbol of art. By luck i am master in painting so I can say it with full confidence because I have read it in my art history .
Today In my real art journey this fort have very special role . because I have started my national level art expression by first national painting camp from junagarh fort . that was organized in Junagarh Fort with title KALA KUMBHA 2003 . After that art camp I were exhibited my drawing exhibition in that fort , that drawing work I were created from some part of junagarh fort.

Our Bikaner Late Maharaja Karni Shingh Ji was also a great contemporary artist , he was painted many experimental work on canvas by oil color or by simple black ink. It is a bad sound for him because his art work was not registered in our INDIAN art History . May be some art historian will add his art work for our INDIAN Art History . it is very must to for contemporary art .may be time will notice his true art work .
I am remembering to day of Birthday of Maharaja late Karni shingh ji , in Junagarh fort I were participated in a art workshop that was organized by Princess Shidhi Kumari ( M.L. A. East - Bikaner ) granddaughter of Maharaja late karni shingh ji . I were invited in that camp as a youth artist and I saw there lots of school kids and some other youth artists of my city were presented for that art workshop . we were created painting in art gallery hall of Junagarh fort .
When I were creating painting in hall of junagarh fort that time I were giving respect to our king family and respect to vision of our late MAHARAJA’S and respect to our historical traditional art history of Junagarh or Bikaner. I were giving respect to late un none painters of Bikaner . by that art camp Junagarh was again converted in symbol of painting . but there all artists were busy in contemporary painting . I were done there some experimental work like our Maharaja late karni shingh ji . I were created a painting by oil pastel color on packing paper sheet .i were created canvas to packing paper for painting. That was critical art action by me for visual art from place of symbol of painting ,Junagarh fort.

After that experimental art work I were created a landscape of a part of junagarh fort , that was in water color on hand made sheet , you can say that art work was very academic art work by me . a complete study work of landscape . on a other white canvas I were draw a ant and my sign only ..ha
Here I want to share that painting workshop visual for your visit . because that was my true art exercise with critical view .

There camp organizer was gave a task to all youth artist , in that task they were gave canvas and oil color to all artists and said you will create a portrait of MAHARAJA late karni shingh ji , they were display some photo portrait of MAHARAJA Late Karni shingh ji in front of artists . that was competition for all artists. I were created a portrait of MAHARAJA Late Karni Shingh ji but I were not participated in that competition , because I were not in practice of portrait and I were not liked competition in art that dislike is with me today and it will live continue in this art journey.
But in that art task I were noticed organizer wanted to search a true artist from that artists of art camp . They were founded a youth artist and then our Hon’ble Rajmata sahib was gifted a prize to junior artist of our city . in that art activity our hon’ble Rajmata sahib was followed to her family culture or action of art promotion .
After saw that live art promotion action . you tell me how to I stop to myself for saying it , painting symbol of Junagarh Fort Bikaner.
