MINIATURE PAINTING BY USMAN TIRANDAZ. Jaipur based artist Usman Tirandaz is a modern mughal master of a sort.
His oeuvre is markedly defined by the miniature style developed and patronised by the Mughals in India. Interestingly the artist traces his ancestry to the mughal workshops of Akbar, one of the finest Mughal patrons of the arts. Although innovative,
the mughal workshops produced styles that followed a visual index. In the case of Tirandaz, he uses the traditional style as an impetus and uses his innovative style to transform the recognizable motif. A master of naturalistic flora and fauna, his works
recall the miniature tradition, but still are distinctly different. His keen eye and attention to details transforms life style studies into
evocative scenes that converse with the viewer. He draws heftily from his vivid imagination. His technique has a marked influence of the persianate style of painting, celebrated prominently in Mughal miniatures. Regardless of the rooted influences
the artist leaves ample space for innovation. The present work depicts a bird in all its splendour. A fairlyelementary rendition is transformed into a work of art owing to the artist's vision.
