Our journey of life, began in a serene warli village, neatly tucked within the folds of that land, where two cultures distinctly envisioned by imaginary borders, meet. We grew up basking in the nature-loving ways of the warli tribe that we were born into while being surrounded by beautiful lush jungles, mighty mountains and playful rivers, which gave us much fodder to ponder the mysterious ways of the universe.
We are brothers by blood, and as God would have it, we are also brothers in Spirit, bonded by our love for art and for life. Our parents sowed a powerful seed of education in our minds during our growing years, which has grown into a fruitful nourishing tree that continues to inspire us to show that empowering seed in other seeking minds through our calling.
In our growing years, we spent most of our time walking in the jungles, slingshot in hand, mastering our aim and letting our imagination thrive amidst the fresh air of the wild. The Jungles, the Mountains, the Animals, Warli Tradition and Warli Culture inspired us to become Warli painting artists so we try to capture the pulsing beauty of this fine world, and share with you, the mystical wonders and the spontaneous fleeting moments of joy as well as sorrow, that life, in all its subtle intricacies, holds in loving treasure for all of us.
warli environment always helps us to get our tribal art more closely, fuelled by our passion for its evocative designs that make still figures leap into life! We are now introducing that spit of vivid storytelling in our own warli paintings that we work on day in and day out, practicing this rich art together and sharing with this world our labors of love.
As a child, I was more likely to be found on the forest floor studying the miniature worlds of moss rather than gazing at the grand vista of an overlook. We find inspiration in the smallest of things- the way a shadow falls on the curve of a leaf.. a flower folding up when its bloom is spent.. the metamorphosis from fecund to decayed. The patterns and fractals of Nature fascinate me.
We enjoy painting/writing out these ethereal moments in time and space on the canvas, and weaving them with stories and myths we grew up around and this space here, our dear friends, is our offering to the beautiful gift we are all endowed with- this bountiful life, on this wondrous earth.
