Waterside’s Resident Folk Artist!

 

The beautiful pattachitra painting above is a work by Neerja Tata, Waterside resident and member of one of the many UN families residing at the Plaza. Pattachitra, which translates to "cloth art," is thought to be one of the oldest indigenous art forms and draws heavily from Indian epics. Neerja has taken patta a step further by translating the art form to wooden screens, coasters, and more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Neerja’s work is currently being exhibited at the Watchung Arts Center in New Jersey in the exhibition entitled "India From My Window." The exhibition ends March 27th so don’t miss your chance to see it. You can also see more of your fellow resident’s work on her website http://www.neerjatata.com/  .
