About Manoj Tekam

Manoj Kumar Tekam, a dedicated Gond artist hailing from Dindori, Madhya Pradesh, has been immersed in the vibrant world of Gond art since 2011, learning the intricate techniques from his brother, Bhajju Singh Shyam, a Padma Shree awardee renowned in the field. Keeping the tradition alive within his family, Manoj's daughter and wife also practice Gond art, while his younger brother is currently learning the craft. Despite completing his education up to the 10th grade, Manoj's true passion lies in the mesmerizing strokes of Gond art, which have earned him prestigious awards such as the Rajya Award in Madhya Pradesh and the Kala Rupankar Award in Bhopal, among others.

Manoj's creative journey extends beyond traditional mediums, as he explores innovative avenues to showcase Gond art's timeless charm. From adorning walls and canvases to intricately painting on everyday items like t-shirts, sarees, and coasters, he seamlessly blends traditional motifs with modern narratives. Despite facing language barriers and initial skepticism, Manoj's unwavering determination and belief in his craft have propelled him forward. Inspired by his mentor's perseverance and dedication, Manoj strives to not only excel in his artistic endeavors but also to uplift and inspire budding artists, ensuring that the rich legacy of Gond art continues to flourish for generations to come.
