Who is Mumbiram?

Mumbiram is a painter and author from India known for his leadership of the Rasa Renaissance movement in Art. He is best known for his soulful renderings, in charcoal and colour media, of the folk people of India in real life situations. He is considered to be a contemporary classical painter who is inspired by real life muses with whom he invariably has a close egalitarian friendship. He is the rare contemporary artist that has introduced an indigenous art movement and a manifesto. His Personalism in Art has now proliferated into the Rasa Renaissance movement that is based on the classical Rasa Theory of Sanskrit literature. It is a theory of aesthetics that puts the quality of human emotions that a work of Art or literature arouses as the criterion of its excellence. Mumbiram is equally gifted with words. His work of Euphorisms “Deluges of Ecstasy” that he composed during his 12 years in America is a path-breaking work in the prema vivarta mood.
