We are totally in love with this beautiful art practiced by one of the Largest tribes in India-the Gond, who are predominantly from Madhya Pradesh. The work of Gond artists is rooted in their folk tales and culture, and thus story-telling is a strong element of every painting.
The Gond people have a belief that viewing a good image begets good luck and they decorate their walls and the floor of their houses with traditional tattoos and motifs. Among the Gond, it is the most prominent among the Pardhan Gonds who are renowned for their artistic skills, be it painting or music. Gond paintings have also been used by the Gond people as a way to record their history.
Gond paintings are a reflection of man’s close connection with his natural surroundings. While a majority of Gond paintings do take inspiration from nature, it isn’t the only source of ideas. They also turn to the myths and legends of India or showcase images from the daily lives and dreams in their art.
We simply love taking inspiration from Gond art and seeing them getting transformed from paper artwork to our products. We intend to promote this beautiful Indian art by making them available to you in different forms of products like bags, mugs, mouse pads etc.
Our Gond Art inspired products are perfect gift for anyone travelling to India or for someone living outside India. Gift them and make them feel closer to our Indian Culture and arts.
