Warli Art is one of the most easily recognisable tribal artforms in India. It blends stick figures of humans, deities, and animals with geometric shapes like circles and squares in a repeating pattern. Usually drawn in white on the walls of dwellings and utensils such as pottery, Warli artists also create vibrant fully coloured paintings on canvas and fabric. All these images tell stories from the rich Warli culture revolving around mythology and living amongst nature. Gaze long enough at them and the figures quite literally come alive with vivid creations – comprising animals and birds being stalked by hunters in the forests, women dancing around a fire and warriors with bows and arrows staging epic battles. Nowhere is Warli Art more prolifically created and displayed than the Gandharvapur Artist      Village in Saputara. When you visit when you stay at a Club Mahindra resort in Maharashtra, you get an opportunity to visit this artistic place

Not only can you witness the creation of Warli Art at an Artist’s Village by tribal artists, you can also try your hand at creating these beautiful masterpieces and pick up a souvenir to grace your home. With the rise in modern entertainment and art, these ancient art forms face the risk of vanishing from the creative sphere, which is why places like Gandharvapur Artist Village should definitely feature in your list of things to do in Saputara, as they provide an avenue for these artisans to ply their trade and make a decent living. It also gives them a platform to interact with the world and showcase skills passed down from generation to generation, a process which seems to be lost in today's world.

With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad! To know more about the experience of seeing the Warli Art at an Artist’s Village, read the Club Mahindra member reviews.
