Original Tribal Art, Creation Of Earthby Deccan Footprints
$1,159
The arist Anil Chaitya Vangad hails from a small Warli tribal village in Maharashtra north of the cosmopolitian city of Mumbai. He has been paintings for the last 18 years in the traditional art style of the Warlis, experimenting with themes of gods and goddesses as well as the more contemporary issues of our times. It was the artist's mother who influenced and taught him how to paint. The tribal rudimentary art of the warlis, uses a circle, a triangle and a square. The circle and triangle come from their observation of nature, the circle representing the sun and the moon, the triangle derived from mountains and pointed trees. Only the square seems to obey a different logic and seems to be a human invention, indicating a sacred enclosure or a piece of land. Human and animal bodies are represented by two triangles joined at the tip; the upper triangle depicts the trunk and the lower triangle the pelvis. Their precarious equilibrium symbolizes the balance of the universe. Warli art reflects the tribal philosophies and culture. This distinct style depicts the everyday life of the people keeping in mind the humans and nature share the same space and the peaceful coexistence. According to Warli folktale, Shiv and Parvati created Earth with the help of demi or spiritual gods which were brought to earth hidden inside the stomach of a bull. They created the vegetation and prepared the soil to receive humans who thereafter would be the caretakers of mother Earth. The Warli believe that everything in this world interacts: the actions of humans and the harmony of space. The universal harmony is maintained by the implicit unique communication between humans and deities. The warlis extremely rudimentary paintings uses a circle, a triangle and a square. The circle and triangle come from their observation of nature, the circle representing the sun and the moon, the triangle derived from mountains and pointed trees. Only the square seems to obey a different logic and seems to be a human invention, indicating a sacred enclosure or a piece of land. Human and animal bodies are represented by two triangles joined at the tip; the upper triangle depicts the trunk and the lower triangle the pelvis. Their precarious equilibrium symbolizes the balance of the universe. The central motif in these ritual paintings is surrounded by scenes portraying hunting, fishing and farming, festivals and dances, trees and animals. Water the life source has been beautifully employed to create negative spaces to talk about the daily lives of the village folks in this art. Whether it is farming, fishing or just taking care of daily chores, all have a part to play in this uniquely simple art tradition by rendering pared down pictorial language in white geometric designs of circles, squares and triangles. Careful attention is given to show a variety of trees which are drawn in great details forming decorative patterns. Animals are also shown in action giving the painting vibrancy and movement.Read More
