I think we're one of the last few places that paint banners. To think we started the biz with this, its become a pretty niche product, a banner, where prints sell for more than the paintings at times. Letter artists, mixing specialists and the assistants who first draw the graphs for the subjects to be filled in, all come together to put stuff like this together. I've grown up with these people around me, stories of my father cleaning brushes and palettes for his pocket money... so the few times nowadays, that a banner does get painted, I document it.
The one above was made for a bollywood themed wedding, the face cutouts where one can put their heads in and take a picture. This one was lying in my shed, and was about to get painted over.
