Hand painted Bollywood posters once dotted the rural and cityscapes all over the country. With digital media taking over, the art seems to have disappeared into the oblivion. Well, not quite. Thanks to people like Hinesh Jethwani, the brainchild behind Indian Hippy, handpainted posters and the artists behind them are still thriving.
Indian Hippy plans to spice up Indian homes with Bollywood inspired functional décor products like fold-able chairs, coffee tables and portraits. Of course, there are accessories like wallets, belts, clutches and handbags too.
Here’s what Hinesh had to say about his endeavour, “ Indian Hippy offers a range of exclusive hand painted products available in limited edition formats that combine art and function. Painstakingly hand painted to perfection by acclaimed film poster artists from India, Indian Hippy strives to revive the traditional art of hand painted film posters. Indian Hippy’s designs are a kaleidoscopic attempt to capture the beauty and magic of blockbuster Indian films of both the past as well as the present age.”
“Our sole initiative is to revive the old charm of film poster art and hopefully give the last few remaining artists in this trade a platform to express their skill and creativity once again in front of people”.
Indian Hippy gives you the option of customizing your own products, or even get your face painted in film poster! A nice way to recall the bygone era, what say? Oh btw, this post is dedicated to my co-blogger Sharon who is planning a bollywood corner in her new home.
