About Bhavam Murals
The revival programme of this traditional art was started by Sujith and Surya quite a few years back.What started as a 2 person programme has now grown into a family of 25.
The art is done using natural colours obtained from plants and minerals. The art primarily uses only five colours, therefore called Panchavarna Chuvarchithiram.
Originally a wall was prepared by coating it with a mixture of limestone and tender coconut water a number of times before the actual painting can begin. Today, there are various experiments with new media and the murals are being done on canvas, bamboo, MDF boards, terracotta, fabric and so on.
Natural Colours can be replaced by Acrylic colours as well.
This technique is now extended on to more contemporary products relevant for the Urban Consumer.
