Gond Art

It is a form of painting from folk and tribal art predominantly of the largest Adivasi community of Madhya Pradesh.The Gonds traditionally painted on mud walls of their houses and transforming their ritual performing arts into a new tradition of figurative and narrative visual art using a variety of modern media (including acrylic paintings on canvas, ink drawings on paper, silkscreen prints, and animated film)they have created unprecedented depictions of their natural and mythological worlds, traditional songs and oral histories. Rich in detail, color, mystery and humor, these tribal works, brilliantly employ modern means to evoke the pre-modern psyche.
