  • ABOUT Bhil Art

    Tracing their ancestry to the powerful archer, Ekalavya, of Mahabharata, the Bhils are one of the largest tribes in India, found in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Maharashtra. Bhil art portrays tribal life in vibrant colours, and is steeped in rituals, symbolism and tradition. Reflecting changing seasons as well as natural phenomena, everything connected with their life is painted – the Sun, the Moon, the animals, trees, rivers, mythological figures and their Gods. Be it on paper or on the walls of their home, Bhil art reflects the tribe’s innate sense of aesthetics. Bhil artists use herbal colours and vegetable dyes, such as kumkum, haldi, kajal, rice, mehendi and limestone, as well as acrylic paints.
