Course Start Date:

The objective of this course is to introduce to the Warli art which depicts the way of life. In particular, the themes used by the people Warli tribe their paintings are predominantly based on rituals, weddings, and ceremonies that take place in everyday village life. Generally, the paintings on the walls of their huts are traditionally done by the women which are greatly influenced by their surroundings and day-to-day life. Most of the murals depicted in the walls are done on red mud or cow dung layered walls and the figures are painted with a rice-flour mix, which could be washed off and re-painted every season.

A detailed description of how the Warlis make use of white pigments against the earthy backgrounds as their paintings have a deep connection with harvesting and new babies that take birth in their tribe. The study gives much emphasis on geometrical shapes, which are a peculiar feature, as plenty of dots are incorporated in Warli paintings. Moreover, the wall paintings use a very basic graphic vocabulary, such as a circle, a triangle, and a square. In which the circle and triangle come from their observation of nature, as the circle representing the sun and the moon, the triangle is derived from mountains and pointed trees. Only the square is believed to adopt a different logic.
