The art form that hails from the indigenous cultures and communities in India enumerates a distinct tale of realities of Life. One such art form is Jogi art, a kind of tribal art pursued by the Jogi communities hailing from the western Indian state of Rajasthan. A unique style, Jogi artwork is made using paint or a ball point pen on paper and the artworks are a manifestation of what the artists witness and experience around themselves. Each of the drawings would depict elements like urban landscapes crowded with people and towering buildings, birds, animals and character studies. Illustrative in nature, a closer look reflects stories and scenes, where the line between the real and imaginary blurs.
The art form was developed by Ganesh Jogi nearly four decades ago and it reflects a new India through the eyes of artists straddling the modern and traditional and fits effortlessly in a contemporary décor scheme.
Over the last five decades, Ganesh and Teju Jogi and their six children have developed a unique visual vocabulary that has over the years been codified into a recognisable art form practised only by the Jogi family. Jogi family’s works illustrate the dualities and contradictions of their lifestyle. Featuring elements of their daily life, the works depict cities and villages, tradition and modernity, freedom and oppression and other aspects of their existence.
This curations brings together a collection of Jogi Art, which is on sale to support Cartist Festival, a festival to promote art and automobiles across India
