Warli Painting / Tribal Art / Warli Art - JK Arts

Warlis are  living in the coastal areas of Maharashtra and Gujrat. Warlis are the tribal people or you can also refer them as adivasis (in Hindi)

Warli paintings are just a way of expressing their joy, happiness or various aspects of life like wedding, harvesting season etc. in form of shapes and designs which are drawn with basic graphics like a circle, triangle and a square. If you look at the Varli art, you can make out how easy it is to make it but has lots of expressions behind it.

Patterns of Warli Paintings:
It basically consist of geometrical patterns. Circle represents the Sun and the Moon.
Triangle derived from mountains and pointed trees. Square indicating a sacred enclosure or a piece of land. So the central motive in each ritual painting is the square. These geometrical figures joined together to form beautiful patterns. Like two apex of triangles are joined together to form a human figures.

Hence, it’s just a symbol that shows harmony between human beings themselves and with nature. Specifically used to paint the mud walls of the villagers.
