The dying art of Miniatures by Nadia Sani

This particular portfolio is a humble effort to try to revive the traditional Miniature art of south Asia. I've worked in every school of thought and the subjects vary from portraits to landscapes, architecture, dreams, mythology and religion. Miniature is basically the illustrative art specifically in Mughal Era. Everything from paper to brush to colors are prepared by the artist in the traditional manner. It's very disciplined form that viewer must view the work at close range to obtain a full appreciation of both the image and technique. This technique is a specialized means of producing a perfect balance of color and details, showing a high standard of stylized design, landscape and portraiture usually on a very small scale. There is a feeling of preciousness associated with the art form.
