Indian folk art styles form the roots of our culture, history, and mythological tradition. Let's rediscover them anew.
Dialogues and Urban Kala bring to you our Folk Art Series, a collection of 6 Indian folk art workshops.
Folk Art Series Session 1: Gond Art
The Gonds are the tribal community mostly found in the Gond forests of central India. They are widely spread in Madhya Pradesh. Gond paintings are a form of painting from folk and tribal art that is practiced by one of the largest tribes in India with whom it shares its name. Gond comes from the Dravidian expression, Kond which means 'the green mountain '. Owing to this belief the Gond tribals traditionally painted their homes, mud walls, and floors during festivals and marriages using colored muds. Initially, they used to do it as a decorative and symbolic art that could fight off evil and invite optimism, hence the forms of Gond art are also very simple and yet expressive in their own way.
