Warli painting is a form of tribal art, done by the tribe called “Warli”. The tribe largely resides in ‘Dahanu’, in Thane district, Maharashtra. Other tribes that participate in warli paintings are Malharkoli, Kokani and Katkari.
Warli paintings started as the decoration of house walls on festive occasions, asking for blessings of God. It is done on brown surface, painted by red colour, called ‘Geru’. Traditionally, rice paste mixed in milk or water is used for these paintings. However, these days, artificial colours like poster colours are also used. Other colours used are yellow (turmeric powder) and red (‘sindoor’ or ‘kumkum’ powder).
In this world of digital art and 3D printing, Nazariya is a movement to bring us closer to
the beautiful world of Indian Folk Art. It is an effort in not just reviving these artforms,
but also making them relevant for the contemporary world.. Nazariya is trying to bring
out the subtle message behind these artforms; the message of unity, brotherhood and
community. This is Nazariya's way of taking you on an incredible journey into India's
past, helping us create a new future.
