Description

Gond art is meticulous in its execution and rich in colours. Dhavat employs all the traditional techniques and tribal imagery but makes use of modern materials like paper, canvas and paints in creating drawings and paintings of animals emphasizing our urgent need to protect his immediate environment from human interference.

Characterised by a oneness with nature, the Gond tribe from Madhya Pradesh create bold, vibrantly coloured paintings, depicting mainly flora and fauna. The colours are created from earthy materials like charcoal, cow dung, leaves and soil. The painted surface is made up of dots and lines. Today, these styles are painted with powdered pigments or even modern day acrylic paints. The Gond art form was promoted worldwide through the masterful Jangarh Singh Shyam. He unfortunately ended his life due to loneliness in faraway Japan, as he was unable to communicate. One of the current masters of this art is Dhavat. He has built a refined style of his own and a formidable reputation. This artwork will be shipped rolled with Crimson’s certificate of authenticity.
