The Tales we Tell: Indian Warli Painting: V&A Museum of Childhood (1)

This exhibition is included as a part of the V&A India Festival which celebrates India’s rich cultural legacies. The Warli painting displayed in the Museum of Childhood is a tribal art form from Western India which focusses on the most basic of graphic shapes, the circle, square and triangle. Artists featured such as Jivya Soma Mashe and Ramesh Hengadi have transposed a once restricted art form into one that is responsive to their 21st century contemporary sphere. More information here:
