Warli Art

The Warlis or Varlis are an indigenous tribe or Adivasis, living in Mountainous as well as coastal areas of Maharashtra-Gujarat border and surrounding areas.

The Warli painting style is close to pre-historic cave paintings. It breaks the barrier of three dimensional rendering and the objects seldom overlap. It is interesting to see how a monochrome composition with rudimentary object forms like this can be so appealing.

Unlike most other ancient Indian painting traditions that use vibrant colors and depict mythological stories in fine detail , Warli paintings express everyday life using extremely basic object forms and just one color – white – on an austere mud base.

I was so excited to take this project of making a Warli Art.

Look at the detailing.
