About The Founder
Passionate about Madhubani Art.
Vidushini Prasad is a Bangalore-based folk artist specializing in Madhubani painting. Her association with painting began in the early 2000s when she found inspiration in this traditional art form from her home state of Bihar.
Although she occasionally painted as a child, it wasn’t until after having her first child that she picked up the brush again. She wanted to do something from home that would allow her to spend time with her family, so she began painting to decorate her own home and making paintings for friends and relatives.
Her work was well-received, and she was encouraged to pursue it professionally.
Despite not having formal training, Vidushini has inherited this art form through her culture and takes pride in it. She works on distinct types of handmade paper, canvas, and silk and conducts online Madhubani workshops.
She is also associated with A Hundred Hands, a registered Charitable Trust based in Bangalore, which helps revive traditional handicraft skills. Vidushini has exhibited her Madhubani Paintings at several art galleries across India and has been invited by several technology companies in Bangalore to display her work and conduct workshops.
She has been promoting Madhubani Arts across all social media platforms, including her blog and Facebook group, with over 32,000 members. Some of her exclusive work is available on Novica.com, a National Geographic partner site.
The Central Cottage Emporium has empaneled Vidushini, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India as an enlisted artist and has also authored a book on Madhubani Art, commissioned by the National Resource Centre for Cluster Development.
