Sopana Chitrakala
- Mural painting in Kerala:

History of Sopana Chitrakala:

The history of paintings in Kerala can be traced back to more than thousand years. Pictorial art, though primitive, existed in Kerala right from the Mesolithic period. Rock pictures found in Edakkal caves of Wayanad District depict household articles and dancing men with masks, which were drawn during that period. The murals of Kanthaloor temple in Thiruvananthapuram drawn in the 13th century and those of Pisharikavu and Kaliliampath in Kozhikode drawn in the 14th Century are some of the oldest known temple wall paintings in Kerala. Ramayana murals of Mattancherry palace, the paintings in the

Chemmanthitta Siva Temple in Kudamaloor and Thodeekkalam in Kannur district, wall paintings

at Panayanarkavu, Kottakkal, Padmanabhapuram and Krishnapuram palaces are the best

examples of medieval mural paintings. Many Churches of Kerala have excellent mural paintings.

The St Maryâ??s Sunoro Church in Angamaly dating back to the 16th century have murals depicting

Heaven & Hell, The Last Judgement and various scenes from the Bible.

Dating back to the 9th and 12th centuries, ancient temples, churches and palaces abounded with

these vibrant paintings depicting mythology and legends. Traditionally artists used naturally.

Pigments and vegetable colours. The stories were inspired by â??Dhyanashlokasâ?? which are a

collection of hymns from various ancient texts.

In this workshop, students will be able to learn a brief history of Kerala mural art form and learn colour mixing and complete 1 picture in canvas.

I am a owner and designer of 'JewelsCraft'. Let me share something about myself and my brand 'JewelsCraft'. From school, my dream was to become an artist. But my family pressure I choose IT field as my career and I buried my talents and dreams for my career. I continued as an IT professional. As a woman at certain point of life we have to choose family or job as our priority. I choose my family as my priority and quit my job. For me my kids was more important than my profession. This gave me a chance to pursue my dreams. I decided to make my dreams come true. Whatever opportunities came first I picked it up. Got a chance to learn Jewellery making & later completely into terracotta field and that was a turning point. My passion for painting I got attracted to terracotta and that was the beginning of this journey. I find terracotta is the best platform to experiment all kinds of arts. Instead of sticking same type of patterns I tried different varieties of art forms like Traditional, Contemporary, Carvings, Murals, Freehand paintings like Raja Ravi Varma Painting's, Egyptian, Warli, African, Fabric textures, Tribal, on terracotta. 2013 I started giving training sessions for students. I shared my ideas and lessons which I learned from my teachers and my experience with them. Now I had trained more than 120 students. 2016 we started taking online classes to students from abroad and out of Karnataka. These training sessions gave me wonderful opportunity to share thoughts with different artists from different places. I also had done my diploma in graphics from Amrita University, Trained in Kerala Mural Painting and Realistic painting in different mediums.
