At a very young age he started exhibiting at different festivals and dastakaris organised by the government. He brings in a new thought to the age old tradition of Gond painting and has been called to exhibit in galleries across the major cities- Mumbai, Hyderabad, Delhi and the likes. He is among the few of this generation who carries forth the fading roots of this textured painting tradition from the villages of Madhya Pradesh. About the Art form Gond is a form of Indian folk and tribal art named after the largest tribe of central India with the same name. The word Gond is a derivation of the konda word meaning green hill which consists of parts of Madhya Pradesh, Chattishgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Orissa. The inspiration behind Gond art is almost always nature and social customs represented through a repetitive patterning of dots and dashes. Each artist uses this patterning to create his or her own signature style while choosing colour schemes and subjects that are indicative of the communities they represent. The signature styles are the essence of this tribal art form and are intrinsically used to fill the surface of their decorative patterns and motifs. Gondi art traditionally adorns walls, ceilings, and sometimes even the floors of houses. They honour the festivals and customs of these tribes but is not limited to these themes. Quotidian subjects such as animals, nature and humans engaging in daily activity are also common themes. The subtlety of Gondi art is in how flat perspectives are brought to life by positioning warm earth tones next to vivid hues of other colours. The first Gond artist to gain international acclaim was Jangarh Singh Shyam.

Voices Within The Wall

The two-day workshop ‘Voices within the Wall’ looks at documenting the walled city and its heritage through voice recordings and conversations. All in an attempt to create a sound installation, the documentation will explore questions of ‘belonging’ and ‘conservation’. Though the recent world heritage status has put the walled city of Ahmedabad on the global heritage map, some of the key questions to be explored is ‘Whose’ heritage are we talking about and ‘What does heritage mean’ beyond an institutional level. We hope this workshop transcends beyond a documentation to an artistic expression. Workshop itenary: The workshop will be for 2 intensive days. 26th August : Meet at Siddi Saiyed Mosque for an orientation at 10.30 am. A day-long site documentation with intermittent reviews. 27th August: Meet at Conflictorium at 10:30 am. Review the collected voice recordings and data. Workshop on creating Sound Installation. Workshop charges : INR 500 Please note that this sound installation will be further developed for an exhibition, at the Conflictorium that will be open to public from September 9.   Source: Facebook
