Art has always been an growing industry and the past recent years have seen an immense reform in the Art industry.A major credit in bringing Art to a bigger audience is due to the availability of Social Media in every part of the country. Social media has now become an medium for many artists to showcase their craft on internet while making their Art reach a wider audience. This was indeed a Art Revolution, and whenever a revolution comes; every small or big industry tries to become a part of it or utilize the time to bring a change. Soon, we saw many Tech Companies creating mediums for Art. Creating platforms to feature various artists hidden in their own firms, while bringing a sync between those Tech and Art skills which are interrelated. This definitely went on to become big, when more & more tech giants started Art initiatives, and increased their social media engagement.

5. Palm Leaf Etching (Odisha) - by Mastercraftsman | 1st September | Iteeha

Palm leaf painting may have begun with decoration of manuscripts with illustrative depictions of the stories or events, and took over to become an art form of its own. With engraving and use of colour, this art form evolved to bring a multitude of ideas, fables and tales to life.

In the zigzag folds of crisp yellow-green leaves, delicately strung together with thread, are needle-sharp fine drawings carefully etched and cut out, telling stories from great mythological epics.
