Sohrai folk painting is an indigenous art form that originates from the state of Jharkhand, India. It is a unique form of tribal art that is characterized by its vibrant colors, intricate designs, and depictions of local flora and fauna. Sohrai painting is usually created during the harvest season and is traditionally painted on the walls of homes and huts in the rural areas of Jharkhand.

The 13 styles of Sohrai Painting

Sohrai painting is an ancient art form practiced by indigenous tribes in Jharkhand, India, serving as a conduit for self-expression and storytelling. Utilizing natural earth colors, Sohrai paintings emanate an authentic and rustic allure.

Four primary colors form the palette of Sohrai art: Black Manganese (kali mitti), Haematite Redoxide (laal mitti), Yellow Oxide (peeli mitti), and Kaolin Creamy White (safed mitti).

These artworks vividly capture scenes from daily life, including harvest festivities, weddings, and cultural rituals. Intricate designs and patterns inspired by nature, such as birds, trees, and flowers, adorn Sohrai paintings, reflecting the deep-rooted connection between the indigenous communities and their natural surroundings.

In recent times, Sohrai folk painting has garnered increased recognition and admiration as a distinctive and captivating art form. Numerous artists and organizations are actively engaged in preserving and promoting this traditional craft. Notably, Sohrai art received a Geographical Indication (GI) Tag in 2019, acknowledging its cultural and historical significance.
