Square Peg

This collection is inspired by Ganjifa cards. A traditional art form of hand painted playing cards. It has been a part of our history for 400 years. It is now almost extinct with a handful of families across India still working hard to keep it alive. This collection draws attention to the struggle and uncertain future of this art form. Its silent and never ending war with the fast paced digital and modern world. Artists of the newer generations are refusing to carry this tradition and learn the art form as they see no future. A misfit in today’s society. New replacing the old. Modern replacing the traditional.
