Gond Painting








Tribal painting, though popular among most tribes in MP, is extremely well honed as an art among the Gond tribe of Mandala. They have a peculiar style that reflects their creativity and unique view of things around them. They paint deities, pictures of Nature or simply an event of day to day life. Very colourful and descriptive this art has its own charm . Gond painting uses a technique of creating textures by pattern. In Gond and other tribes painting is not restricted to paper and does not entirely depend on synthetic colors. They make the ground and the wall their canvas and use limestone or charcoal as mediums to make various decorative paintings for their houses.

I did the above two paintings, of which the first is known as "Tree of life". I have used ceramic colors on hand made paper.

Nice ones.
U can also have a look of Madhubani paintings. I don't have much knowledge of styles of paintings but I think it is similar to each other.
