Artist#4: Kafeel

Its really sad how hand painted type if a dying art! It was sad that it wasn't considered art in the first place. In India we had thousands of hand painted artists, but because of the print media they all lost their jobs. None of them have websites, or online presence. But they are a beautiful local art I always want to remember. One such painter is Kafeel. He is has mastered the hand type skills,because of years and years of practice. The above picture is just one of his practice type! I really hope hand painters in India get paid enough to survive this amazing skill!
