About the Book:

The tribal art of India mirrors the myriad colourful cultures of the tribes and emanates an earthy essence of rural India. The creative tribal art is truly a living tradition and an iconographic expression of tribal lifestyle of our country. This art brings out the aesthetic sense, exuberant energy, out of the box imaginations of the tribes of India and is highly appreciated for its stylized symbolic motifs and use of vegetable dyes.

The book is an introduction to the various tribes and their panoramic paintings from different corners of India. Some popular art forms are performed by the tribes like Warli, Saora, Gond, Bhil, Muria, Kurumba etc. on their freshly plastered mud hut walls. This book illustrates the pictorial representations and detail descriptions of the actual life situations and the art forms of different tribes. Fair amount informations had been contributed by different Government and Non-Government Organizations, renowned scholars and artists connected with this field.

This book will surely be helpful for people associated with the streams of Art, Anthropology, Sociology, Fashion industry and those who will like to do research in this subject.

About the Author:

The author has widely travelled across the country and interacted directly with the various tribes and the tribal artists.
