I am so happy that my “Indian Art Gallery Wall” is taking shape beautifully. You have already seen four different Indian folk paintings that I have painted for the gallery wall. Here is the fifth one, Warli painting of Maharashtra.

I love and admire all Indian art forms but warli is the one that gave me lots of opportunities to enhance my skills, to interact with different creative and intellectual people and to excel in the creative field.

I had made this Warli painting three years ago. After I published the images of my First Warli Painting, one of my readers from the USA found a certain part of the painting so moving that he wanted me to paint and sell that painting to him. I painted the same and sent him happily. Below is the image of that painting.

After that, I received another request from one of my blog readers to paint warli painting on her balcony walls and that was quite an interesting, adventurous and fun project. You can check out the complete project of Warli wall painting here. Below is the image of that warli wall painting.

Warli is the simplest and beautiful Indian art form. It is Introduced by warli tribe of northern Maharashtra. Warli means “a piece of land” and this art is inspired by nature. Style of the painting is very simple. Only geometrical shapes are drawn to make figures, like circles for head, triangles for body and lines for limbs.

The theme of warli painting unlike rest of the Indian art forms isn’t based on mythology. Instead, it depicts day to day life and celebrations. I chose marriage celebration in a village as the theme of my warli painting.

Warli isn’t complete without some birds, huts, trees, carts and villagers performing everyday tasks like farming, pottery, getting water from the well, feeding chickens, cooking, grinding grains in grinding stone and kids playing around, a complete village scene that gives this art its true essence.
