About the Art:
Gond Painting derives its name from the Gond community who are the ‘adivasies’ or one of original people of India. Their mention is found in the Indian epic of Ramayana that contains India’s history of more than 10,000yrs. Interestingly, the Gonds also lend their name to the ancient Gondwana supercontinent! Gond Paintings are characterised by themes from nature being represented with intricate mark-making and meanings rooted in their life philosophy and culture.
About the Artist:
Shri. Venkat Shyam is a renowned artist who was initiated into the artform at the tender age of 10. He hails from a Pardhan Gond family that is traditionally responsible for reciting the community’s oral histories, officiating at ceremonies and festivals. He has internationalised Gond painting by drawing on the Gond tradition and introducing new subjects and techniques that represent the contemporary world, reflect national and international news and concerns. He works and teaches worldwide, with exhibitions at Tate Modern and SOAS, UK being the recent highlights.
This is a 1 hr class for Beginners. It will be conducted over Zoom. Shri. Shyam joins us live from his workshop in India. You will be given a whistle-stop tour of the artform, his family’s heritage, brief summary of the techniques, steps and materials involved. A bird will be the subject of our workshop. You will sketch and paint it under the supervision of the artist.
