Rambharos Jha is an artist and writer based in the culture-rich Mithila region of Bihar, eastern India. He grew up watching women decorate the walls and courtyards of their homes, and through watching and learning began to draw himself. His work has been exhibited widely in India, as well as in the US, South Africa and Iceland. In the last few years he has been working extensively on water bodies, a subject he describes as "one of my most cherished muses". This is his first book as a solo artist.
