Friend creativity have no boundary , I told about it in last post on this art vibration blog. Here I want to share a one more very strong example about boundless creativity.


Real creativity  we can see in village life . there to we can observe to boundless creativity and that’s right definition  for our visual art definition. Village life know how to use to useless medium of life , they know how to use free space and how to create space  for creativity . in village a tailor use to small pieces of cloth for creation of a colorful rope . some fur cutter of animals , they are cutting to fur of camels for rope creation in that fur cutting they are enjoy to big body space of camel for his creativity . they are cut  to camel fur in very artistic style and create lots of design  on body of camel . After fur cutting came is look like a canvas and that’s body design look like a tattoo art and painting too. When that decorate camel move on land in that movement that is convert in a live canvas form .

I remember a demonstration story of Late Great Art Master M.F. Hussain Sir , he was gave a demo in a art workshop , he was demanded a white color ox for his art demo . when ox was came in front side of Hussain sir , he was taken a big brush in his hand and gave a stroke on body of that ox in next movement that ox was felt touch of wet color brush and run away from that workshop place , and Husain sir said to all my demo is complete ..hahah.. he gave a logic of his art demo  with this words, he said when I give a stroke to my canvas in that movement my canvas run far   to me and I follow to that it my art philosophy ..like that..ha ha .

So  you think how to a fur cutter cut to camel fur , that is very big and design full fur cutting work  . its  want time and camel is camel not a human but a village creative person  do it on camel .how to ?  you imagine .i will not share it otherwise WWF  society will stop to fur cutting art of villagers. Ha  Some camel rider always like his decorate camel so they are do fur cutting of camel with fine design . here in my city Bikaner ,  last many years to tourism department of Rajasthan is organizing camel festival . in this festival they use to camel they are present to camel for viewers with different type use of camel in our Rajasthan with traditional styles. So in that presentation they were preset to camel fur cutting , they are organize competition for fine fur cutting ,  In that movement many camels  move in that festival like a live canvas  painting exhibition .

In design of that fur cutting I were noticed the element of design , a fur cutter was used folk art design form , some animals images , birds Images , flowers images and stories of traditional Rajasthani  Stories . a creative fur cutter give his full time in that art work , you know a camel body size is 4X3X2 fit’ s  its main part of camel body  back of camel , neck size is 1 X 4X2 fit’ it mean a came have 30 to 35 fit’s space on body for fur cutting art  ,I can say a 10X20 fit’ s  live canvas  is a body of camel for a fur cutting artist. Kind  your information some fur cutter sign of his self on camel body by his fur cutting art , that is a writing work on camel body by fur cutting art work. That sigh is showing to camel like a moveable sign board for publicity of fur cutting . I sure  you will accept villager know how to use to  free space for right use about life , they convert to camel in canvas look or in moveable sign board  for marketing  of art and craft. They know camel is a big animal of desert , it is move  for long journey with his master so it can exhibit to art and craft of village , in a different view fur cutting give a different look to camel when lots of camels live in a one place or in one  village , a thief can’t hidden to fur cut decorated camel and he can’t mix  to that camel in other camels , it is a special point for  safety of camel  from thief of camels. Some camel master’s feel proud when his camel move with him in village or in city with fine decorated fur cutting design  , that artistic live canvas make his  very rich and art promoter image in village culture.


So I said came is in my view a live canvas …
