 Sh. SANJIB KUMAR JHA (GOLU JHA) 

STATE AWARDEE TANTRIK MADUBANI ARTIST

from Madhubani, Bihar, India.   

 


Q1. How did your career journey start? Or Who/What inspired you to start this Art Journey?

I started my journey as a Tantrik Madhubani Artist as a young child but started commercially selling my paintings from Year 2000. Its more than 2 decades now. My father Sh. Krishnanand Jha was a famous artist in his field Madhubani Tantra Art. People say he was the pioneer of Tantrik Madhubani my grandfather late Sh. Digambar Jha was his instructor and Guru. My father worked did both Kachni (line work) and Bharni (solid colours) paintings; but he was renowned for his Kachni style of Tantrik paintings.

Q2. Kindly share some information about your Arts, products and services here.

My art routes through epics and religious books In books there are dhyanas (the formation and true picture of God and goddess). I try to picturize it in same manner but not in the same form. Form is mine but the rules and regulations are from the Puranas; the Hindu religious books. 

 

My father and I both tried not to change the rules and diagrams i.e. the Yantras. I still strictly following that and those who will try to learn and who have learned for them it is my suggestion not to change the form and diagram but they are free to work in their own way with own imaginations as for example = if the dhyana says the God and goddess have four arms, we cannot depict them as six or ten arms. In yantra if there are 8 petals we cannot make them six or four. 


Q3. Are you an Art Entrepreneur? What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing your arts? Do share with our readers about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties?

I can say I had no problem in starting because my grandfather and father Sh. Krishnanand Jha were there for me and most of the buyers were foreigners. I had the privilege to have customer base which helped me carry forward my father’s legacy.

 But, currently due to this pandemics, the foreign base is challenging.

 

As the market is now gearing up my Artwork is reaching patrons through curators.

But I can certainly say through social media, I have got good response from more and more people for my Tantrik Paintings; they are taking interest in my art whether they purchase or not. Have gained many students also through these platforms.

 

Q4. How have you empowered other people?

 I have taught more than 300 people and also the curators are gaining from my art works.


Q5. What are your future plans? Or now what is your vision for next five years?

It is my vision people to create more Tantra Artists and take this Indian Folk Art form to a next level.

My plan is to have my own Art school; for this I am looking for support from NGO’s and Institutions.


Q6. How would you advice/suggest new artists/entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain?

I will urge new people to come and work in this Tantrik Field of Madhubani Art. They will get a new opportunity to identify themselves and certainly their future will be bright.

 I urge new artist’s to be true to their art and treat each piece as their own baby.
