Gond Painting

These paintings were used by the Gond people to record their history ; although Gond paintings are centuries old, over time they shifted from the muran walls of houses to canvas and paper. Inspired by legends and myths, the paintings depict nature as their main motif. Often described as line work, it was created by drawing lines to convey a sense of movement in the still image.

Gond paintings are the reflection of a person who is closely connected to his or her natural environment. Gond Art consists of lines, dots and strokes that convey an impression of line work that attracts the viewer. The paintings are carefully curated with lines, strokes and dots that provide a lively sense of movement and increased attention to detail, which makes the painting attractive.

Gond paintings are mostly from Madhya Pradesh, but are also found in parts of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and Chhattisgarh. While Gond painting originates mainly from Madhya Pradesh, it is also very common in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhatisgarhs and Odisha.

With its origins in the heart of India, Madhya Pradesh, Gond painting is a folk art and painting practice of the Indian Gond tribe. This form of painting, a folk and tribal art practiced by one of India's largest tribes with which it shares its name, has become so prevalent that the Indian government has intervened to protect it for future generations. Painting in this region has been going on for a long time in the history of this tribe, which dates back to 1400 years, when they copied cave paintings of their ancestors in the region dating back to the Mesolithic period.

The Indian government has taken several steps to preserve the art and tribe of the Gond. The Gond tribe has its origins in Madhya Pradesh and derives its name from the word kond, which means green mountain. The art and the tribe belong to the state, but are also popular in the regions of Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Odisha.
