Safal Chitre - A talented Warli Artist

Warli art originated in rural Maharashtra.It was practiced widely by the tribals of the region to decorate their mud houses. In fact this art gave them the freedom to express themselves.

I have written about this form of art in many of my earlier posts.Some of them you can read herehere and here.

Today's post is dedicated to  a talented artist Safal Chitre,  currently residing in the United States of America. she is a self motivated artist.The simplicity yet the elegance of this form of art impressed her. She learnt Warli and since last 4 years has started her artistic journey in this field.

She says," Apart from traditional warli style, I am trying to give modern look to it  by adding colors on various mediums. Having started as a hobby , I want to take it to Professional level."

Let's have a glance at some of her work...
