The Gond tribal community is one of central India’s largest indigenous communities and their art is an expression of their everyday quest for life.
Trees, animals, birds, and other environmental representations are probably the most recognizable subject matter in their visual art practice.
Gond paintings are known for their rich detail, bright colors, embedded mystery, and a taste of humor.
These tribal artworks are anything but outdated. Not only do contemporary Gond artists use modern materials and methods but they also brilliantly represent contemporary scenes
and concerns while keeping true to age-old traditions and style.
Gond paintings have been centuries-old, with the passage of time, this art form has gradually shifted from the mud walls of the houses to canvas and papers. Apart from deriving inspirations from legends and myths, these paintings majorly feature nature as their main subject.
