Following My Paint Brush
by Dulari Devi
Following My Paint Brush tells the real life story of Dulari Devi, a woman who was born into a very poor family and later went on to become a celebrated artist in the Mithila style of folk painting from Bihar in eastern India.
Used to a life of hard and relentless labor, Dulari discovered a passion for painting while working as a domestic helper in an artist’s house. She learned by doing, and very soon came to adapt artistic rules and conventions to her own expressive needs.
The reader follows her momentous journey from a worker who knew no rest to an artist who is willing to go where her imagination leads her.
Dulari’s story is told through the simple, yet powerful words of Gita Wolf, and her own paintings, which stand out with bold patterns of parallel black lines, swirling shapes and intense solid colors.
While this book will be of interest to folk art lovers, it is sure to inspire all readers who may be exploring their own talents.
