“पिछवाई मेरे जीवन में बसी हुई है, हम हर दिन यही कोशिश करते है कि हम किस तरह इसे और बेहतर बनाये ताकि कस्टमर को इसका भाव, महत्व और मेहनत दिखे ”
Jayesh Sharma has been practicing pichvai painting for the past 20 years. He inherited his love and devotion for pichvais from ancestors, who have been carrying on this legacy from the past 12 generations. He is now training his children to make sure that the tradition persists. He loves to innovate in his paintings, keeping the beliefs and story intact. He sees his work as a commitment and as part of his devotion (seva). The Annakut celebrations is one of his most favorite subjects. His grandfather’s Gangaramji Sharma work was displayed in the Bhuleshwar temple, Mumbai. His own art can be seen at the Shrinathji temple, Nathdwara and in Udaipur, at the Badrinath temple in Manasa, Madhya Pradesh, at the Dakor temple, Gujarat, and Bada Mandir Haveli Mumbai. He was also recognized by a Prasashti Patra by Indra Daman Goswami ji for his contributions to the Wall of the Lord at Nathdwara. He is truly a representation of “Allow your passion to become your purpose, and one day it will become your profession”.
