Jogi Painting

Jogi Art This tradition of painting was started by the late Ganesh Jogi, who belongs to the Jogi community – a community of Sarangi players and singers. Over a period of time, he found it increasingly difficult to earn a living from his music and fend for his family. A chance meeting with the well known artist, Haku Shah, a lover of folk art and music, initiated him into exploring and developing his drawing skills. Eventually, he developed a style of his own which was naïve yet fresh with extraordinarily complex images comprising of dots and lines. Thus a new art tradition was born and his entire family consisting of his wife Teju, sons, daughters and their spouses are continuing with it. Such is the interest it has generated amongst art lovers that their works are even finding their way into art auctions.
