Pushpa Kumari is one of the finest Madhubani artists in India today. The grand-daughter of Maha Sundari Devi, one of the pioneers in transferring an ancient wall art onto paper and textiles, it was but natural for Pushpa to continue the tradition. What makes Pushpa special is that though she is rooted in her centuries old tradition, she has incorporated not only contemporary ideas and treatment, but also, an artistic intensity, an aesthetic ideal that is truly her own, difficult to find in the mass of generic Madhubani paintings being churned out today. Her works are part of the collections at prestigious museums such as the National Museums, Liverpool, UK, the Mingei International Folk Art Museum, San Diego, USA and the QAGOMA, Brisbane Australia as well as with several private collectors.
