With the advent of technology and digital printing, a lot of old Indian hand traditions are being forgotten, Shekhawati painting being one of them. Mahendra Pawar from the region of Samode is an exponent of this vanishing tradition, a style of painting which is a folk tradition native to the state of Rajasthan.Plant-like arabesques, architectural features and geometric patterns are common subjects for the panels that divide the walls in spandrels of arches in Shekhawati paintings (miniature art).
