Repurposing the Gaze: A conversation with Paula Varjack - South London Gallery

You’ll also find a new text by London based poet Kareem Parkins-Brown.

Both pieces are part of the Spread the Word @spreadthewordwriters series of commissions for the SLG’s Convergence programme.

One of these is known as #Warli painting as the world renowned art of the tribe. Tribal people have created a unique identity in the #Art world through their #Warli Painting Tracker style to preserve their innovative traditions. Warli paintings are viewed as ancient art of tribals, and from the cave paintings of primitive times, the journey of Warli painting on canvas today is a long one. The Warli tribe of the tribal community has preserved their special identity for generations. The young educated generation in the community is also learning the art of painting. One of these artists is Vijay Babu Vadu, who lives in Ganjad, Daudanpada in Dahanu taluka of Palghar district. Vijay Vadu, a 3-year-old from Yashwantrao Chavhan Mukt University, who is in the third year of the # Arts Branch, has made a tremendous contribution to spreading Warli paintings worldwide. For the last 3 years, Vijay has been drawing paintings and the warli paintings he has painted in various places are on display. Warli paintings depicted by Vijay through Tribal Development Department have been presented in other places like Delhi, Haryana, Bhubaneswar, Chennai, Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam, Indore, Mumbai, Pune. His paintings are exhibited in Australia, France, Paris, Portugal, and elsewhere. Warli painting is known as an art that represents the overall vision of tribal culture. The Warli painting, which features a special feature on tribal community festivals, weddings, jungles, livelihoods of animal tribes, used to paint the Red Math, Rice Pest, Cow dung, as its color, and paint it on the walls of Kuda. Warli painting is well-known as an art representing tribal unity. "The Tribal Development Department and the # Tribal Research and Teaching Institution TRTI are getting valuable support for reaching the warli pictures I have taken around the world. Vijay Babu Vadu said that Warli painting with tribal identity should reach as many people as possible. # Tribal Art # Pictures # Tribal Culture # Culture #Art #Adivasi #WarliPainting #TribalCulture #TribalArt #Culture #Artefacts #Palghar #YCMOU #TribalDevelopmentDepartment #TDD #Mahatribes
