Inherited Arts Forum presents a group exhibition featuring the distinguished Mashe family called “Warli Whisperers” on view from 1st December.Warli paintings come from a tribal community along the foothills of Sahyadri mountains in the Thane district of Maharashtra, India. Primarily practised by the women of the community, the Warli style was not recognised as an artform until the 1970s, even though it has been in practice since centuries.Warli art consists of clear cut lines, is relatively minimalistic, secular in subject and highly imaginative in composition. One of the most celebrated artists, Jivya Soma Mashe, also known as the master of movement and geometry, was the first man to take on a female-dominated tradition. In his work he captures the constant cyclical movement of life and is inspired by folklore and other stories narrated to children. His sons, Sadashiv Mashe and Balu Mashe, whose works are featured here, carry the tradition forward and have shown with various galleries across the world.
