Suvigya Sharma

Suvigya Sharma, belonging to the revered line of Nathdwara Painters, started painting at the early age of 7 and practiced traditional fine miniature art under the tutelage of his father, the legendary artist R K Sharma.
Miniatures are one of the oldest art forms dating back to almost 5000 years, and is made using natural vegetable dyes, semi and precious stones. Miniature art was losing its importance and gradually being replaced by contemporary art when Sharma stepped in to keep this Indian heritage alive. Sharma has mastered the craft of fusing 24crt gold Tanjores with miniatures. His art form is more refined than Tanjore, which is traditionally thick with coarse detailing. His technique uses minute detailing where the gold can be separately seen.

Suvigya’s efforts have been widely appreciated, winning him several accolades including mentions in Asia Book of Records, India Book of Records and Limca Book of Records. He was the only artist in the Make In India campaign. Furthermore, he has been the recipient of several prestigious awards like Rajasthan Gaurav Award, Pride of Rajasthan Award, Bharat Gaurav Award in 2019, and will be receiving the prestigious President Award by Honourable President Shri Ramnath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhawan in February 2020.

The artist has also been featured in coffee table books like ‘Who’s Who of the Industry’ Rajasthan and Rajashthan’s Most Powerful 10. Needless to say his works have been showcased in several shows across the globe and collected by connoisseurs and well known public figures including PM Narendra Modi, the Ambanis, the Birlas, Rani Mukerji, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and Justin Bieber.

Suvigya’s work expands beyond miniature art to pichwai, fresco and restoration of historical works at Jaipur City Palace, Humayun’s Tomb, Agra and Singapore Art Museum.
