One of my recent paintings which I completed around Christmas this year. This was for a nice little house tucked away in a lush green belt at my hometown. This painting is the depiction of episodes of a story from the Upanishads.

Hey there!! Its been such a long break and I am finally back to post more: this time again on Warli.
The following two pictures would have been nice if it wasn't for the damage that has been done. Its really sad that many are ignorant about the value of these ancient art forms and besides don't even make it a point to keep the surroundings clean.
Its these few pictures that I managed to take when I passed by this theme-based restaurant called "Naati Mane" in Bangalore which had a village ambience as it was entirely painted with Warli from the outside. Everyone is into Warli these days!! Its really nice to see the popularity of Warli art growing and I am really happy to be able to contribute my bit to it too :)
