The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year and a half despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations.  I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take several weeks to arrive.  Please note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

Santoshi Bai

About the Artist

The Baigas are an indigenous tribal community from Central India who believe in living in harmony with nature. They consider the Earth as a Mother and do not practice plough agriculture as they feel it will hurt Her. They are essentially forest dwellers and believe that the Divine Creator created forests to provide everything necessary for human life.  Their origin myths speak of the Divine Creator giving the Baigas special knowledge to live in and off the forest. They lead very simple and non-materialistic lives. Their art on paper and canvas which is a recent phenomenon depicts their age-old reverence for Nature.  (Information courtesy of Minhazz Majumdar).

Santoshi Bai Baiga is 65 years of age, lives in the village Lodha. She paints in her free time.  The paintings of Santoshi Bai Baiga have an surrealistic energy.  She likes to explore modern themes.  She often likes to illustrate Bageswar Dev, the tiger god.
