JOR SINGH – BHIL ARTIST of MADHYA PRADESH
Jor Singh started painting after he married to Bhuri Bai of Pitol. Bhuri Bai has taught the art to many people in painting workshops all over the country, but she says Jor Singh was her first student and he picked it up very fast since he could relate to the themes.
Jor Singh’s main motif is aquatic life. In Bhopal, he often goes fishing in the Bada Talao (Big Lake) and he captures those times in his paintings. His other favourite motifs are animals in the jungle and memory pillars.
Jor Singh works in the Public Works department of the Madhya Pradesh Government.
