I am a self-taught artist and passionate about art. For me art is the way to calm myself and bring peace to my mind. I love to work with different mediums and bases. I like taking up new art techniques and enjoy the process of making and I strongly believe that art is all about painting the dreams into reality!
Beginners Warli Art with Manya
Warli paintings are a traditional art form which originated in Maharashtra, India. They were originally done by tribal people of the region. They practiced the art as a way of connecting themselves to nature, and so Warli art form uses a lot of different geometric shapes in the art work like a circle, square, triangle etc. Each of these represent different nature elements. Warli art was traditionally done by people on the red bricks houses with rice flour. Even now in Maharashtra this art form is widely practiced and houses and buildings are still decorated with Warli motifs.
