Three Tribal Artists > Bhuri Bai, Jangarh Singh Shyam, Jivya Soma Mashe


I stumbled upon Bhuri Bai’s work on Hervé Perdriolle’s blog and was fascinated by her imagination and craft. Found the interesting works of Jangarh Singh Shyam and Jivya Soma Mashe as well. Presenting all three.

    Ce message à Monsieur Hervé Perdriolle dont j’ai lu l’article sur Yves Véquaud, celui qui découvrit l’art du Mithila dans les années 60.
    Yves Véquaud fut l’un de mes plus proches amis, je possède d’ailleurs une peinture du Mithila qu’il m’a offerte.
    Par pudeur, il s’est éloigné des siens durant la longue maladie qui l’a emporté et je ne sais pas moi non plus où se trouve actuellement sa collection. Il est mort avant sa mère, morte à son tour depuis, mais qui avait sans doute hérité de lui auparavant.
    Il est possible également qu’il ait fait un don manuel de toutes ces choses à l’ami qui vivait avec lui durant ses derniers mois de vie, un garçon polonais dont j’ai oublié le nom mais que je pense pouvoir retrouver si cela vous intéresse toujours.
    Dites-moi cela.
    Avec mes meilleurs sentiments.

        I’m interested in doing a story on Jangarh Singh Shyam and his art as well as his family and gond tribal as well. How can I get in touch with his family and those close to him who were aware of his work? Hope to hear from you soon.
