Each of these Indigo Art Bags (purses) contains an original Miniature painting by Pittsburgh artist Harish Saluja. The purse consists of a metal-plated exterior, with a clear window to showcase the colorful artwork. The interior is vegan leather. The art is protected by a thin, transparent, acid-free, archival film.
The Miniature paintings are small (3×5 inches), gem-like abstract explosions of color. These are inspired by the traditional miniature art from India that has been known for centuries. The artist has given that concept a modern, abstract interpretation. Often these miniatures serve as the basis for larger pieces of work. The minis are made with oil and water-based paints.
His abstract-expressionistic paintings explore vivid colors and intricate patterns. Many of his work, both of the larger scale and his miniature versions, are based on visual interpretations of music (Ragas and jazz).
