Warli Art

The diversity of India’s artistic heritage is best reflected through the tribal art forms that have existed since as long as the tenth century. Hailing from Maharashtra, Warli art is a prime specimen, of how its namesake tribe, one of the largest in India, revealed the ways of their life through art. Way ahead of its time, Warli art was helmed by women who sought to convey the social life of tribals through the characteristic circle of life – depicting their everyday lives, their environment and nature.

Today imprints of Warli art have found their way into clothing, accessories, billboards and canvases, but traditionally the art is drawn on mud walls with white paste. Find deeper meaning in life around you through an artistic plunge into the world of Warli art.

Pichwai Painting

This 17th century painting style is made up of two Sanskrit words – “pich” or back and “wais” meaning hanging. Pichwai paintings were originally made to hang as the backdrop of the shrine in Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Krishna, particularly the Srinathji temple in Nathdwara, near Udaipur in Rajasthan, India. Shrinathji is the child avatar of Lord Krishna and this art form originated in Nathdawra. They were originally painted on cloth and depicted the entire surrounding, including important elements that were part of Shrinathji’s life, like the gopis, the cows, and the flora. A typical Pichwai has 24 boxes in the boxes called “swaroops”. Each swaroop has a Krishna, gopis and various other elements. Despite the numer of elements, the painting never looks crowded and the colours and vibrancy create an ever lasting impact.

Kalamkari Painting

Kalamkari is the exquisite ancient craft of painted and printed fabric. The word “kalam” means pen and “kari” means craftmanship. This colorful art dates back to more than 3000 B.C. There are 2 styles of Kalamkari – Machilipatnam style or the Persian version from Andhra Pradesh and Srikalahasti style or the Hindu version from Chittoor. This style flourished in temples centred around creating unique religious identities, appearing on scrolls, temple hangings, chariot banners, as well as depiction of deities and scenes taken from the Hindu epics ( e.g. Ramayana, Mahabharata and Puranas). Today Kalamkari art is used on sarees and ethnic clothing, depicting anything from flora and fauna to epics such as Mahabharata or Ramayana.
