Warli Village Scene
Painting - Acrylic On Lightweight Drawing Paper
This painting is my take on a traditional Indian folk art form called Warli. It unfolds a typical rural Indian village/farming scene.
Warli is the name of the largest tribe found on the northern outskirts of Mumbai, in Western India.
Warli paintings do not depict mythological characters or images of deities, but depict social life. Images of human beings and animals, along with scenes from daily life are created in a loose rhythmic pattern. These tribal paintings are traditionally done in the homes of the Warli tribe. Painted white on mud walls, they are pretty close to pre-historic cave paintings in execution and usually depict scenes of human figures engaged in activities like hunting, dancing, sowing and harvesting.
