A Study of the Concept of Style and its Role in Folk Art Using descriptive _ analytical methodology, the present paper aims at studying some of the major features of folk art in order to examine the role of style in the genre. Folk art serves as a reflection of the folk culture, historical background, aspiration as well as expectations of a society. Simple structure, sentimentalism, narration and the ability of the genre to communicate are the contributing features of folk art to the development of strong historical, social and cultural ties among different classes of a society. Besides displaying the personal taste of the folk artist, style as the context for their ideology, enjoys profoundly rooted publicity within a social culture due to the socio-cultural nature of the art. It goes without saying that the folk artist is free to develop their independent style as well as to produce artistic creativity within cultural and aesthetic principles of their society.
