Boarder Effect on Traditional Warli

Hi friends :), Hope you all had a gr8 last weekend. I too enjoyed the weekend with some guest visiting our home last week. Currently busy in spending time with them. Hence I will put few words here and describe more about some of my past work. I always admire the simplicity and power behind it which Warli has got :). However, as I said creativity and imagination knows No boundaries- No Boarders. The work which I am going to share has major of traditional warli effect in it. However, I have tried to add the contrast boarder colors in it.

It has got traditional farming/ harvesting theme of warli. I wanted to explore the thought such as..."how just few colours at few place with traditional warli will effect". So I tried to put orange/brown contrast boarder in it. On top of it warli boys are running/ dancing tarpa.
I have tried contrast boarder concept with one more traditional warli theme.

In this painting warli girls are doing domestic works. Such scene occurs in warli life in a day when warli boys have gone out for work and warli girl taking care of babies, in-house duties etc. I have tried yellow-orange kinda contrast boarder effect on it. 
As of now, I have met some art lovers, some of them loved just traditional warli more, some of them loved the modern warli more. I hope with such mix of modern and traditional, art lovers from both the class will be satisfied :).
The painting is done on off-white color fabric with acrylic colors on it.
Dimension: 22cm H x 25 cm W

  2. This borders looks more appealing to ur painting :)

  3. Really nice...loved the contrast in both the paintings. The second one is a bit more appealing than the first.
    Wonderful Warli paintings too. The borders just added life to it.
    Keep it up:)))
