Tribes India offers Gond paintings that are a true reflection of fine art. Through sheer grace, these paintings will appeal to an art lover quite well. This art piece is made by Tribal artist.
The Gond paintings are always done freehand. Putting brush straight to canvas or paper, they seldom need an outline or rough sketch. These paintings are characterized by their dots and lines on the flat colored backgrounds which collectively make up a total graphic. The bodies are seldom in a single color, but are laid out in beautifully demarcated shades and clean geometrical lines. Every gond painter has developed his own mannerism for painting this subject. Visual ingenuity is not uncommon for the pardhans of the gond tribe of Madhya Pradesh who make the gond paintings. They smear mud paste on the floors, doors and walls of their homes and then paint motifs on them with a brush fashioned out of bamboo, using colors made from natural materials. In early 80s some of the pardhan gond painters started painting on paper and developed a more unique style of painting using bright colors and simple forms. Subsequently, this style was popularly known as gond painting. The gond painters love nothing better than to narrate stories behind their paintings. These two-dimensional paintings reflect the artist’s perception of life.
