Hello! My name is Ria Sarkar.
This is not a regular run-of-the-mill art history blog. This is an attempt to answer certain questions and curiosities that have shaped my journey into art history.
The world of Art in the South and Southeast Asian regions is wonderfully diverse, but there are certain aspects that form a link between them which is often lost in translation. That’s what my blog focuses on – highlighting interesting motifs, mapping the trajectory of cultural assimilation across the art and architecture of neighbouring countries, across continents and the impact of religious art from ancient and medieval times.
For more info on me and Artjourn head to the About Section. 🙂
