About Course

I’ve spent the last 40 years working closely with the Warli community, researching and documenting the history and evolution of these paintings over thousands of years.

I have gathered some fascinating insights about Warli paintings and would like the share the truth behind these paintings through my 32 Episode of Warli Painting course. I’ll present them in two separate courses, 16 Episodes each.

Hopefully, you will enjoy the stories and also learn how to draw this painting, the right way.

The Warli tribe is one of the largest in India, located outside of Mumbai. Despite being close to one of the largest cities in India, the Warli reject much of contemporary culture. The tribal style of art is thought to date back as early as the 10th century A.D.

Warli Painting from Maharashtra is among the finest examples of the folk style of paintings that has managed to survive for thousands of years. Warli painting is a form of tribal art mostly created by the tribal people from the North Sahyadri Range in Maharashtra, India.

The Warli culture is centered on the concept of Mother Nature and elements of nature are often focal points depicted in Warli painting. Farming is their main way of life and a large source of food for the tribe. They greatly respect nature and wildlife for the resources that they provide for life. Warli artists use their clay huts as the backdrop for their paintings, similar to how ancient people used cave walls as their canvases.
