Warli Paintings

Warli painting is a style of TRIBAL ART mostly created by the tribal people from the North Sayadhri Range in India. This range encompasses cities such as Dahanu, Talasari, Jawahar, Palghar, Mokhada, and Vikramgad of district. This tribal art was originated in Maharashtra, where it is still practiced today.

The simple pictorial language of Warli painting is matched by a rudimentary technique. The ritual paintings are usually created on the inside walls of village huts. The walls are made of a mixture of branches, earth and red brick that make a Red background for the paintings. The Warli only paint with a white pigment made from a mixture of rice paste and water, with gum as a binder. A bamboo stick is chewed at the end to give it the texture of a paintbrush. Walls are painted only to mark special occasions such as weddings or harvests
