5-day tribal art workshop ends at MPSTM
The five-day tribal art workshop ended here Sunday at the Madhya Pradesh State Tribal Museum.
It should be noted that the Department of Culture of the Government of Madhya Pradesh organized a five-day “Chitra Camp” from July 7 to 11 focusing on the glory of nature in tradition at the Tribal Museum by the Tribal Folk Arts and Boli Development Academy, under the Gamak series.
The Gond and Bhil tribal paintings of Madhya Pradesh have a world class identity. In this era of Covid, where painters had no work, they were also becoming financially weak, in such a situation this five-day tribal painting camp was organized by the Ministry of Culture with the aim of encouraging, to provide an appropriate platform and to help artists.
The tribes live with their tradition and define it in their creativity and all paintings have distinctive characteristics. Gond, depicts scenes, birds, animals and human faces in dark and vibrant colors. The paints have a brown or black base.
Gond’s paintings can be described as “a line work”. The artist makes sure to draw the interior and exterior lines with the greatest possible care so that the perfection of the lines has an immediate effect on the viewer.
About 23 women and 49 men attended this five-day painting camp. Painters have represented the glory of nature, its relationship to man with trees, plants, and wildlife. The painters worshiped Bada Dev in the midst of nature, sculpted the tribal way of life with vivid colors through their brushes. The memory of the tribes and respect for nature in their conduct is clearly visible in the paintings.
