From the village of Jhabua in Madhya Pradesh, Lado Bai's art reflects the flora and fauna of her environment along with the rituals and festivals of her tribe, and is informed by the Bhils' deep belief in animistic myths. Under the guidance of the artist Jagdish Swaminathan, Lado Bai began to transfer her paintings from the rough mud walls of her tribal home to paper and canvas in the 1970s at the Roopanker Museum at Bharat Bhavan in Bhopal. Today, the artist works at the Adivasi Lok Kala Academy.
About Gond Art
Tribal Art has an immediacy that few other art forms can boast of. In the words of the artists themselves they believe it to be a celebration of their own being.
Derived from Lore , the artists immediate environment & now exposure to to turban culture , these artists convey their ideas in a simple , organic visual language , untouched by the layers of formal Pedagogy
Their belief system is based on the sacredness of their environment - it being the source of their livelihood and nature . Their world is populated with their co - occupiers viz animals , birds and insects , who occupy their lore , art and music.
This allows them to develop their own visual rules of engaging with themselves & the viewer . They create their own color palettes , rules of perspective and composition.
What emerges are charming art expressions , all in their own language.
