SHANTARAM CHINTYA TUMBADA
Shantaram Chintya Tumbada hails from the district of Warli in Maharashtra. As part of internationally known Tony Garnier Urban Museum, the artist Shantaram painted five walls painting which represented five continents of the world. His rawness and rootedness of the Warli artist attracted the organizers. Difficult to ignore the simplicity and graphical animation of his paintings, organizers selected Shantaram for their museum. The art of Warli paintings is all about indigenous stories depicted with finesse of fine lines and rhyme. The stories representing everyday life in a village come alive with the paintings by Shantaram.
