About Gond

Gond art is a traditional form of painting practiced by the Gond tribal communities of central India, primarily in the states of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. It is characterized by its vibrant colors, intricate patterns, and depictions of nature, animals, and tribal life. From peacocks, and elephants, to an ant, each creation tells a story and reflects the close relation of the Gond people with their environment. Artists use fine lines and dots to create elaborate motifs, often incorporating elements of folklore, mythology, and spirituality into their designs. The art form was passed down orally from generation to generation, with artists using natural materials like leaves, mud, and charcoal to create elaborate designs on walls, floors, and other surfaces.

Details

According to Gond mythology, the art of painting originated from the Gondi deity, Devi Maoli. It is believed by the Gond people that Devi Maoli taught the first Gond artist, the secrets of painting during a dream. Since then, Gond art has been considered a sacred form of expression by its practitioners. Gond people believe that good images are the harbinger of good luck so they decorate their houses with traditional motifs. Gond art has gained international recognition for its unique aesthetic appeal and cultural significance.

An interesting fact about Gond is that each artist has a distinctive signature style. For them, the ethos of life is a mixture of myth and reality, of organic and inorganic forms.
