About Varnika

Vărnika-bhanga or application and appropriate distribution of colour is regarded as one of the Six Cannons of Painting (Shadanga) of Indian Aesthetics in an early treatise, the Vishnudharmottaram, which contains guidelines on painting in ancient India. This was further elucidated by the great modern artist Abanindranath Tagore, who lists these six components of painting as: Rupa–bheda (difference between visual and mental form), pramana (proportion and harmony), bhava (expression), lavanya yojana (lustre of texture), sadrisya (versimilitude), varnika bhanga.


Imagine perfect depiction of life, form, texture, proportionate figures and landscapes without colour! If there were no colour any of these would convey only partial pleasure and admiration. Varnika appreciates the value of colour and attempts to play a similar role in all its projects.

This website will take you on a colourful virtual tour through some of the projects that have mapped the passage of time in India. While both consultancy and research projects highlight some of the most recent work, photoscope is a vibrant metaphor in time. Our human resources is a dynamic platform of some of the best minds that have shaped the future of India.
