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.
Hello, this is Sowji and I am an Industrial Engineering graduate from Georgia Institute of Technology. Painting, sketching and craft work have been my most favorite hobbies ever since the age of 7. My family and friends have been most encouraging throughout and I've been lucky to be associated with various creative projects in school and beyond. I volunteered and conducted art workshops for kids at the education center of the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. My tryst with paints, paper, canvas and a host of other mediums has been a fun-filled journey so far and an incredible learning experience!
I hope that you enjoy my art, and if you have any ideas for a custom item, I would be more than happy to make something for you! I accept...
