Gond Art is the unique art form of the Gonds, one of the largest tribes in Central India, specifically in Madhya Pradesh, that encapsulates the essence of tribal art. Imaginative, vibrant and mystical, paintings by the Gonds were originally done on the walls of their homes, echoing the customs of their cave-dwelling Mesolithic forbearers. Today, many Gond artists have taken to paper and canvas, bringing one of the most exceptional and unusual art forms into the limelight, and into our hearts and homes!
