Inspiration: The Art of Jamini Roy (1887-1972)

In searching for artistic inspiration for my card game Monsoon Market, I came across the work of early Modernist Indian painter Jamini Roy. His distinctive style of large eyes, simple geometric shapes, and flat perspective still feels fresh. He also sometimes depicted Western subjects in an Indian context, which makes him sort of a postmodernist, too.

Maybe I like his work because it would make pretty cool playing cards, too.
