Warli Paintings – A Dying Art of India

Dadra and Nagar Haveli is home to many indigenous tribal communities in western India. Their unparalleled skill and artistic imagination is proclaimed through the soothing Warli wall paintings.

With basic elements like squares, circles, and triangles, tribals transform a plain wall into a reflection of the world around – the sun, the moon, trees, and nature – and pay their gratitude towards these gifts! These paintings, with men and adorned women dancing around in a circle with musical instruments, show everyday life as a celebration.

The technique of Warli paintings has found its way into the modern world too – be it a modern house, office, or a designer boutique. This timeless art is still being practiced by the tribals of Dadra and Nagar Haveli under the Warli Art Foundation to keep up the rich tradition. Make sure you get a glimpse of these paintings when you are visiting Dadra and Nagar Haveli.
