Art: Wall Art by Haritha
Warli painting is a style of tribal art mostly created by the tribal people from the North Sahyadri Range in India. This range encompasses cities such as Dahanu, Talasari, Jawhar, Palghar, Mokhada, and Vikramgad of Palghar district. This tribal art was originated in Maharashtra, where it is still practiced today. The Warlis or Varlis are an indigenous tribe or Adivasis, living in mountainous as well as coastal areas of Maharashtra-Gujarat border and surrounding areas. They have their own animistic beliefs, life, customs and traditions, as a result of acculturation they have adopted many Hindu beliefs. The Warlis speak an unwritten Varli language which belong to the southern zone of the Indo-Aryan languages

About the Artist:
Hello friends. My name Haritha. I am a post-graduate in Computer Applications (B.Com, MCA.). Due to familial responsibilities, I could not pursue my technical career further. Alternately, painting, which was my hobby earlier, has become my profession and pleasure. I like to explore and dabble in various art forms.I often use cotton canvas as base for my artworks. I sincerely hope that I will be given an opportunity to showcase my amateur talent and will be worthy of your choice. Thank you.
