This Warli artwork titled ‘The Wave’ is by Tushar Vayeda (b.1987) and Mayur Vayeda (b.1992), artists based in Ganjad, Maharashtra.
Tushar and Mayur Vayeda retell a Warli legend in this work. There’s a belief in the community that in each life cycle of the earth, waves of natural and man-made disasters will strike until eventually, all life is destroyed. From this devastation, a new world will be born. The artists employ this myth in a contemporary, pandemic-informed context to suggest that among the ruins lie the possibilities of regeneration.
