Artist

Santosh

Santosh Uikey blue-tick

Santosh Uikey, a passionate artist from Patangarh, Madhya Pradesh, has been immersed in the colorful world of Gond painting since his childhood. Drawing inspiration from his mother's artistic pursuits, Santosh began experimenting with colors and sketches at a young age, eventually founding a group for handicapped girls to share his love for art.

Although he hasn't received formal awards, Santosh's talent has garnered widespread recognition. Notably, he collaborated with Japanese artists on a project celebrating the Narmada River, infusing his Gond paintings with the rich stories and songs of his heritage.

Santosh's artwork reflects the vibrant hues of nature and the cultural heritage of his village. Through his paintings, he vividly portrays the daily life of the Gond tribe, capturing their traditions, rituals, and folklore on various mediums such as wood, walls, sarees, and resort walls.

Despite facing challenges and ridicule, Santosh remains steadfast in his dedication to preserving Gond culture through his art. He dreams of showcasing his work internationally and is even writing a book on tribal culture to further promote awareness and appreciation.



Gond


  Songs of the ForestsThe living traditions of Gond paintings -In the depths of Madhya Pradesh, India, beats the heart of the Gonds- a tribe as old as time. As the community bard (singers) or Pardhan invokes their Great God- Bada Deo- while playing the Bana instrument, he fulfills the crucial task of keeping alive the legendary tales of the ancient Gond kings. Every story, song, dance, and painting brings the community together in a shared celebration of nature and the universe.The Gond tribe has several branches or gotras, each with its own story of origin. The Pardhans, they say, are descended from the youngest of seven Gond brothers who became a priest and a storyteller on the instruction of Bada Deo. As the ancient tribal fable unfolds in the 21st century, the gond artist’s vivid paintings narrate tales of their faiths and beliefs, world view, their visual expression and sense of identity - both as a collective , and as individuals. Vibrant colours and animated motifs filled with intricate patterns of dots and dashes bring their mythical jungle to life. Trees, animals, birds, the sky, water, and earth sway and dance to the rhythm of the Pardhan’s tunes and brush strokes. Gond traditions and fables are a reflection of man’s close connection with his natural surroundings. The Gond painting transports you to the seamless world of the imaginative and the surprising.
