Why is it important for Indian paintings to represent the village life?

Paintings are a form of expression, a form of capturing the emotions and the daily lifestyle of people so that it will be effectively reproduced for years to come. However, since times immemorial, paintings have also been able to reflect the culture and the society as well as ensure that people actually have a good knowledge about everything that is going on in their country. With that being said, it takes a lot for people to realize the value of good quality paintings, particularly by masters such as Thota Vaikuntam.

The contemporary Indian art scenario may seem to be in its nascent stage but it is certainly something that has been picking up pace for years to come. Of course, people like Thota Vaikuntam have been able to contribute on their own, creating paintings that not only get into the Indian galleries, but also ensure that it can creep into the foreign galleries as well. This is the reason why the artist has been able to showcase the very best of his paintings in various galleries across the world, and also takes pride into the kind of paintings that he has been able to bring about in India for generations to come.
