I was blown away by the wonderful morning I spent with Mr Vijay Prajapat, aka Lentil Man. I spent several hours learning all about the technique of Indian miniature painting and Vijay guided me through creating my own small piece. He is a clear and patient teacher and a fantastic artist. You only need to look up Lentil Man Jodhpur to find videos and photos of his work. His work is also for sale and adjoining the studio he has beautiful jewellery for sale too. I highly recommend this experience with Vijay at Umaid Heritage Art School, Jodhpur.

Amazing! One of the most wonderful Art experiences of my lifetime. Sometimes while traveling the universe aligns and blesses you with the chance to see one of the most beautiful things offered. We were wandering the clock tower market and didn’t expect to find a souvenir that will be the centerpiece to remember our trip to India! Don’t miss this while I’m Jodpur, we rode camels we rode elephants but seeing the “Lentil Man” do his thing in person was once in a lifetime!

We really enjoyed this gallery. The professor gave us a demonstration of drawing an elephant on a lentil, and showed us his work and his students work. We were not pressured to buy anything but the pieces were all unique and much better than the usual tourist trinkets so we ended up buying several works for ourselves and as gifts. If we had more time we definitely would’ve taken a class!

While wandering around the city I stumbled upon this art school. The Lentil Man (owner of the school) showed me his work and the work of his students. He is easy-going and he is proud of the work of the school. Lentil man is an interesting figure and he we be happy to show you around. He is also willing to show you why he is called the Lentil man. He will paint a on a lentil in front of your eyes.

This place is nice to visit if you like to get a better understanding of the art scene in India. There are also some beautiful pieces of art for sale.

I love the art I bought. It is delicate and unique. If you want to buy something that you can't find "just anywhere," this is the place to go.

The best place in Jodhpur to see and learn about “miniature”, the 500 years art of Rajasthan. Vijay is an incredible artist. Very passionate, he will teach you a lot. You can buy small souvenir, as postcards, or beautiful work of art.

Brilliant, Absolutely fabulous artwork, Vijay is such a nice man, he gave me a tour of the gallery showing me the art work that himself and the students had done.
Pinto, one of his students of over 10 years also gave an overview of his work.
Vijay invited me back to the gallery for lunch later in the week, along with his son, and pinto, at no time was I pressured into buying anything, infarct it was just the opposite, he gave my wife a lovely piece of work from his earlier years, I did in fact but 3 pieces of work, consisting of 3 peacocks done some 10 years ago, as a gift for my daughter.
Here is the gift he gave me to take back to the UK for my wife, I get a message from Vijay every week since my return, if anything I will remember the warm reception from Vijay and the family, if you have time, spend a few hours here, I stayed the whole day in conversation with Vijay and Pinto.

It is amazing to see how talented Vijey is. Painting a miniscule elephant on a small pea thats incredible to see. A real good teacher with a lot of patience and many interesting stories about history of painting in Jodhpur. He is a real ambassador of the art of painting. It was a great experience to join his workshop and worth the price. Vijey is a real friend for life.

Of course a guide we had with us from the fort took us to this shop. Be careful! It’s a “good” story for our good money. There are nice things but overpriced. Getting exhausted because of these kind of people😢
