Warli Painting

“Have no fear of perfection, you will never reach it”- Salvador Dall

Traditional paintings are vivid expressions of the daily and social events of the Warli tribe, situated in the northern outskirts of Mumbai, the financial capital of India.
Simplistic in presentation, the art makes dominant use of geometrical patterns like squares, triangles, and circles to depict the different elements of nature.
The painting would be done over a brown background which would basically be a mixture of mud and cow dung cakes. The white pigment used to draw shapes and figures would be a mixture of rice mixed with water and gum.

Background: A thick paper layered with a mixture of mud and cow dung

Ink: The shapes and figures are drawn using a mixture of rice flour, water and gum.
