Gond Art Workshop
A Gond Art Workshop was organised for DPSI students to understand the relevance of traditional art forms in the present century and also explore various ways in which traditional art has changed over centuries. Gond art is a form of painting from folk and tribal art that is 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. Traditional Gond artists from Madhya Pradesh have been invited to share the nuances of this art form with students.
