Kathakali by shwaaz Kathakali by shwaaz
This is d painting of a kathakali character.
Kathakali is a dance form of kerala (India) which uses the thickest makeup in the world.
Here i tried to capture Aggressive Bheem (aka Roudra Bheeman).
Inspired from my uncle who is a kathakali artist.
C&C are most welcome.

Wow, this reminds me of my trip to India a few years ago. I saw a couple of dance shows, but I wasn't in Kerala and I haven't seen the Kathakali, I think. Nonetheless, it was a great experience. The stories narreted through dance are so complex and interesting and the characters are powerful and passionate.
Your drawing caught this very well. :)

Well... kerala is a place u need to visit, its one naturally beautiful place.
As u said this dance form also narrates stories with very high expressions. My uncle tried to teach me wen i was a kid but din succeed.
Anyway next time u visit india surely visit kerala and watch a kathakali show ;)
