The best place to feel and experience about South Indian art is Dakshinachitra or Dakshina Chitra in Chennai, Tamilnadu. For South Indian art experienced it is the right place, to learn about Indian art especially south Indian art. The Dakshinachitra is a museum for displaying South Indian art as well as architecture. The have been maintaining and preserving the south India art flavor in it. The museum had been displaying Karnataka Art, Kerala Art and crafts, Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh art and crafts including architecture in itself. It is the place you can feel the art and culture of south India including all four states of South India.

It was a photography tour of icat college students to feel the art and culture of South India and we found all this art & crafts, culture, architecture and performing art of South India at one place itself, that is Dakshinachitra. We started taking some photographs and I took some pictures and tried to convert into the vector format by using Adobe illustrator. This is an idol placed over there belong to Karnataka art and crafts, and also the horse sculptures kept over there, some paintings and crafts displayed in the Museum of Chennai. So I took pictures and try to create them as vector format. The South Indian Art in Vector format. This can be print as high quality in any size. For high quality print you can ask for a copy of this artwork. So you can have big size print on wall or on paper or on any printable sheets.
