Murali Dhar Parashar is an Indian wildlife photographer and painter.

Parashar was born and brought up in Ranthambhore, a part of Sawai Madhopur district in state of Rajasthan in western India. Parashar is a graduate of Rajasthan School of Art (1978–1982).

Parashar is often considered Ranthambhore‘s first son. Born and raised in the towns flanking the Ranthambhore forests Ranthambhore National Park, Parashar’s earliest memories involve treks through the forests to catch glimpses of the elusive tiger. His passion for Ranthambhore and all its inhabitants, quadruped, biped and stationary inspired him to found the Ranthambhore School of Art and Wildlife Conservation Society in 1982.

Despite being taught by some of the greatest scholars of art at the Rajasthan School of Art and his former training in folk art, Parashar’s art is grounded, unpretentious, and honest. Over the years, Parashar has developed a style to suit the natives of Ranthambhore who lack easy access to sophisticated art supplies. With domestic lampblack (soot) and a crumpled newspaper used as a nib, Parashar creates intricate imagery of his preferred muse: the tiger. This award winning photographer draws inspiration from the photographs of the graceful big cat he clicks himself.11350582 826974700713308 3121382341376695757 n11377146 826974037380041 9086467014877289571 n11390370 826974590713319 565879139231512791 n11393093 826974210713357 1230636665667750096 n11412405 826974034046708 7664032391288069575 n

STORY OF SOOT PAINTING

“Soot on Paper” is the new medium, by chance I ( M.D.Parashar) Find out this unique Idea In November 1984, One day I was cleaned a Lamp Glass and want to put again in Lamp, that time I saw the Exist hole of the Lamp was blocked by Soot Powder, I thought if I do not Remove this, Lamp Glass will be more Dirty very soon so I take one small stick in my hand and want to remove that, suddenly the all lightweight Fine soot powder drooped on my Floor and sprayed with air, slowly Floor become Dirty, I have no Idea for Stop that but by chance I have my Sketch book nearby me so quickly I take one White paper from sketch book to use Like a napkin and cleaned Soot Powder from Floor. After when I throwing that outside of my home, I saw 10 to 12 black & white tones on that paper. Because rubbed the paper with soot powder at removing time so that makes lots of black & white Tones there. It just Blink in my mind and I thought if we find out the tones from this way than we can make the Texture same way and will make the painting also with this new medium. In Visual Art only six parts is very important like a Line, Shape, color, tone, texture and Space. So I use this new medium and start to try to make a painting. I have done my first Soot Painting In 1986, now Result is Front of you.
