Colour is a power which directly influences the soul, appeals to the mind and adds beauty to life. Like in the real world, it often becomes the building block of painting. With this thought in mind, Chitrangan Art was established in 2005. Its vision is to explore the potential of colors in the relatively unexplored, complex and beautiful form of Mohin painting. To portray culturally significant artefacts and ancient lifestyles through this form, apart from preserving its traditional style.
A brainchild of artist Milind Deshpande, Chitrangan Art is a platform that invites potential artists from various walks of life. Through various workshops and projects, we endeavour to hone their skills and encourage artistic talent. From school/college students to corporate professionals to retired enthusiasts, everyone can join us. Promoting healthy exchange of ideas, we ultimately aim to contribute to the glory of Mohin painting.
Mohin art (a variation of miniature painting) helps improve your patience and concentration. It is actually a form of enjoyable meditation. At the end of this meditation you get a tangible product which is your wonderful piece of art. It will definitely serve as a boon to parents who feel that their children don't have a good attention span and are found wanting in their concentration levels.
Under the guidance of artist Mr Milind Deshpande, our group, consisting of a wide profiles of students, experience "Mohin" art of miniature painting, which is one of its kind. In a very quiet and peaceful environment with lot of patience, consistency and dedication we enjoy the work of art. I feel it is a meditation which enables us to tap in to our own potential.

Mohin painting for me has always been heroic in scope and not limited by its scale — it is a space to unleash one’s imagination. My interest in Mohin painting was to expand the medium from within, embracing its craft, technique, rigour, detail and small scale, as well as its historical contexts. I was invested in its beauty and illustrative lushness too.
