Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra

Wild Lines | Textile Art Drawings

To create art – one must have great imagination & visualisation skills.

To create a visual that is wildly different from everything else that existed earlier using basic lines is probably impossible today.

But here are some B&W renditions that show just the line drawing of these works.

Had I put my pencil to paper – would I have in a million attempts come up with anything close to this?

These are absolutely unique and complex and wild!

What herbs must she have been consuming in order to get to this point of creativity!
