This is a Gond painting created in the tribal regions of Madhya Pradesh. A ritualistic mural tradition of the Gondi tribe, Gond paintings are done on paper with synthetic colours now. This image is created by Kaushal Prasad Tekam on paper. His signature style is creating a texture through using dashes in various tonalities of black – highlighting certain segments in darker black. The subject is a conglomeration of birds in repeating patterns of pink, ochre, orange and blue – all seeming to have a common origin at the centre of the image.
