About the Artwork +

This charming Warli cloth painting by the artist Dilip Bahotha beautifully captures an aspect of daily life using the traditional Warli art style. Warli paintings are known for their simplistic yet expressive depiction of village life, and this piece is an exquisite example of that.

The painting features a fisherman casting a large, delicate net into the water, aiming to catch fish. The human figure is drawn in the characteristic Warli style, using simple geometric shapes—triangles, circles, and lines—depicting the human form effortlessly. The fisherman appears at the top of the composition, standing on the brink of the water body, with his rod and net extending downward.The dominant element in this painting is the intricate fishing net, spreading out like a fan into the water. This net is meticulously detailed with numerous crisscrossing lines, showcasing the artist's skill and attention to detail. The water body is rendered with horizontal lines and is teeming with various fish and marine life, drawn in a stylized, minimalist manner. The fish, crabs, and other aquatic creatures scattered throughout the water add dynamism and a sense of life to the scene. The background is kept simple with a muted earthy tone, ensuring that the white lines of the painting stand out prominently. The use of earthy colors and white is typical of Warli paintings and adds to the rustic charm of the artwork.

Through this piece, Dilip Bahotha not only showcases the art form but also captures the essence of the life of fishermen—their toil, the intricacies of their craft, and their connection to nature. The painting is a charming reminder of the simplicity and richness of traditional lifestyles and the harmonious coexistence between humans and nature.

Warli


Warli art is a traditional Indian art form reflecting the rich cultural heritage of the Warli tribe in Maharashtra. This ancient tribal art is known for its simple and narrative style executed through geometrical and monochromatic designs. The culture is centered on the elements of nature including wildlife and farming which are often the focal points in Warli paintings. Tradition and Legend Warli art, like many other traditional art forms, is deeply rooted in the traditions and cultural practices of the Warli tribe. This art, conventionally was a communal activity, where women, adults alongside children would participate to draw on the walls and floors of their huts during special occasions like harvests, weddings, and funerals. Mostly, it is a significant means of storytelling, capturing scenes from daily life, rituals, and nature. However, the underlying theme in most Warli paintings is the tribe’s relationship with the land and nature. Warli art is not only an artistic expression but also a repository of tribal beliefs and myths. The Warli tribe worships several deities, specifically a mother goddess, Hirwe, who represents fertility and the earth's abundance. Various symbols in Warli art represent different aspects of their belief system: the spiral shape symbolizes life cycles, while the circle represents the sun and moon, and stands as a symbol of the eternal cycle of life and nature.  Technique  Warli art is characterized by its simple, monochromatic style. Traditionally, artists create paintings on mud or brick walls, using a base of cow dung and mud as a canvas. The images are drawn using twigs or bamboo sticks with white pigment, typically rice flour mixed with water and gum as a binder. The Warli art uses basic geometrical vocabulary like stick figures, triangles, circles, and simple shapes to represent humans, animals, trees, and other elements of nature.  Mostly, scenes portraying hunting, farming, festivals, dances, trees, and animals surround the central motif in these paintings. Jivya Soma Mashe was the artist from Thane, Maharashtra who popularized this artform. However, some of the notable artists practicing this ancient art are Dilip Bahotha, and Anil Wangad, amongst others.
