When two art forms combine, they surely create magic and come out as something that can leave the viewer awestruck. What if two ancient folk art forms combine? Well, it will bring with it a blend of two different cultural values and the relaxing experience would definitely be beyond words. This is what happens when we combine Pichwai and Mandala art forms; the two different perspectives together can be adapted to form a new and unique vision of its own.
To bring the magic of fusion arts in a more interesting manner to you, Rooftop curated an extraordinary session filled with fun and learning with expert artist Pooja Mittal.
