Ask prominent Indian painters like Thota Vaikuntam and they would say that the Indian painting scenario is in its path of resurgence. Not only has it been making inroads into the painting scenario of European countries, but it has been able to create a certain sense of semblance amongst themselves. It is something which will be able to revolutionize and create an aspect amongst Indian painters to think of Europe as their calling, but all the while undertaking paintings from the Indian context they would be called the next cultural ambassadors from India.
However, the primary problem that the Indian painters face is a lack of exposure. When you look at painters like Thota Vaikuntam that has been around for quite a while, you get to see the kind of exposure that they have got after a long time. In order for a painter to thrive, he or she should be able to get exposure pretty early, after which depending upon their skill set, they would be able to move on to higher things or simply gave up. Therefore, the Indian painting scenario is looking bright, and a lot of people have actually provided honest initiatives to bring about the appropriate change in the mindset of Indians towards the painting.
