Artist Rambharos Jha grew up on the banks of the legendary Ganges River and developed a fascination for water and water life. In this visually sumptuous book, Jha creates an unusual artist’s journal, adapting the motifs of the Mithila folk-art style to express his own vision. He frames his colorful images of octopus, crocodiles, birds and shellfish with a playful text that evokes both childhood memory and folk legend.
Waterlife is silkscreen printed by hand on handmade paper, and hand-numbered to indicate the limited print run.
