About Artist

From the village of Dindori in Madhya Pradesh, Gond artist Braj Bhushan Dhurwe creates art reflects the flora and fauna of his environment along with the customs and festivals of his tribe. His work is informed by the timeless tradition of Gond painting, portraying ritualized depictions of Gond. The artist inspirations came from the stories told by his elders, and his personal faith that the gods will be pleased by his art. His paintings exude in simplicity—a characteristic quality of tribal art—while emphasizing on the storytelling aspect of the work, rather than its realism. Modest in form, but striking in impression, Dhurve’s subjects are dark figures across the canvas creating an effect of striations and waves with their colorfully dotted forms. Under the guidance of the artist Bhadu Singh Dhurve, Braj Bhushan Dhurve began to transfer his paintings from the rough mud walls of his tribal home to paper and canvas in the 1990s. Today, the artist is recognized by TRIFED (Tribal Co-operative Marketing Development Federation of India Limited), Ministry of Textiles. His works have been exhibited in France, U.K., and extensively throughout India.

Description

The artwork is much brighter than it appear in the picture. This artwork is an original gond painting directly from the gondi tribe of Madhya Pradesh. The gond artist is recognized by TRIFED. This tribe has always been quite popular for their paintings as well as art forms. The Gond people have a belief that viewing a good image begets good luck and they decorate their walls and the floor of their houses with traditional tattoos and motifs. According to their belief system, all things are inhabited by a spirit and consequently are sacred. Gond paintings are a reflection of man's close connection with his natural surroundings. They do take inspiration from nature, it isn't the only source of ideas. They also turn to the myths and legends of India or showcase images from the daily lives and dreams in their art.
