Warli painting’s originated from maharastra.The name warli came into light because of the tribe warli in Maharashtra.Warli paintings showcase their drawings on mud walls,brown walls and now recently it is even used as design on dresses.

Warli painting’s have simple structure that is they mostly draw with circles,squares,and rectangles,they put emphasis on the story they are delivering through the painting.

Mostly it’s about their lifestyle,that is farming,dancing,singing,working.

On special occasions they draw these things with the white pigment.

These paintings garnered attention for their simplicity,and raw feel that these drawings show.
These paintings are very popular and they are available on many online sites ,people love to decorate their homes with these paintings.

Even the small figures when painted on the walls they recieve so much attention ,they are pleasing to the eyes. The dancers take a long turn in the audience and try to encircle them for entertainment. The circle formation of the dancers is also said to resemble the circle of life.people are doing their own activities and enjoying their time.The huts depict,their homes,the trees.

Every thing is depicted in those basic geometric shapes becoming its own speciality and oozes uniqueness,and sense of familarity.

I remember we had an activity where we had to draw over walls and the topic was warli paintings ,it was very fun to draw those things on the walls.

These paintings depict their culture, lifestyle,and their essence is the depicting small things in our life in a beautiful way.
