Jivya Soma Mashe is the most prominent practitioner of traditional Warli art. He has traveled to Japan, Canada and several other countries, and has had many shows in galleries and museums there.
The tribe lives about 150 kilometers from Mumbai and still today speaks a language, which has no written form. Warli art is famous for its mural paintings of supernatural beings and scenes of everyday life. The works are painted entirely in white, by applying a mix of rice dough, water and gum resin, which acts as a binder, on the terra cotta walls of huts. A bamboo stick is used as a "brush" to trace motifs, based above all on the figures of circles, triangles or squares.
