Tanjore Paintings

Google’s Tanjore – “The Web is What You Make of It” for Chrome.

Google has really been stepping up its game with their advertising in the last 6 months. Here we have another really well executed spot for “The Web is What You Make of It” campaign for Chrome. The spot is beautifully shot, skillfully edited fun to watch, and informative.

“Inspired by the real story of G. Rajendran, an artist from Tamil Nadu (Southern India) who used the web to bring the dying art of “Tanjore” paintings back to life and became a successful businessman in the process. The art is supposed to have originated in 1600 A.D and is an important part of the local social and cultural heritage.”
