Warli Art – How difficult it is to be simple!

Indeed!!! Nothing is farther from the truth. In our pursuit to be sophisticated and ostentatious, we are forgetting to be simple. This is true for the various art forms too.

Warli painting, for one, is one of the most simple art forms. But don’t you be fooled by its simplicity! These pretty stick figures captivate the onlooker by their varied portrayal of life in its entirety.

Trust me. I – who have dabbled a little in this wonderful art form – am totally carried away by the beauty and depth of Warli Art which originated from the tribal villages of Varli situated in the mountainous regions of Maharashtra.

The beauty, the uniqueness, and the simplicity of this art form lie in the fact that it uses geometric patterns like circles, triangles, squares, lines, and dots. These basic shapes are turned into a work of art by creating figures resembling humans, animals, huts, and trees.

 I like to think that these tiny people on the walls of the mud thatched huts, call out to me and invite me into their lives and tell me their stories. When I look at these paintings, I become one with them in their joyful occasions like weddings and childbirth, and many more. Pretty fanciful thinking, huh!? But, tell me the truth, isn’t it so? Don’t you feel the same?

The day-to-day activities are also endearingly painted, which gives us a sneak peek into their lives.

It is a wonderful thing that now these paintings are not restricted to mud walls alone. The tiny Warli people adorn an enviable range of objects and speak to us.

They have become an integral part of our lives and we can proudly say that this elegant art form has finally arrived. 

On this note, I passionately and sincerely urge you to give one of these pieces a chance to adorn your sweet home. Whether your home is of a cozy ethnic style or has a chic contemporary look, Warli art paintings from our artists here at Goldenstrokearts are sure to enliven your space and add that special zing!
