Gond paintings are a form of painting from folk and tribal art that is practiced by one of the largest tribes in India. Gond comes from the Dravidian expression, Kond which means ‘the green mountain’. While Gond paintings are considered to be from predominantly from Madhya Pradesh, it is also quite common in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhatisgarh and Odisha. These paintings are a reflection of man’s close connection with his natural surroundings. To give our Circle Members the experience to learn and enlighten themselves about Gond art form Rajasthan Studio curated a special workshop and invited Krina Sopariwala.
Krina Sopariwala is a mixed media artist, and she loves to play with different mediums. It all started, when she was caught up in boredom and registered for another artist than with time she started enjoying doing painting, then later started to work with different mediums and started to take online and offline workshops.

Krina started the Gond Art Workshop by explaining about Gond art. She informed the attendees about what all materials were to be used. All the attendees paid attention and noted all the key points.
She told the attendees that they were going to be making a deer with beautiful green scenery around it. Moving on, She taught the attendees to make different types of folds. She made sure that she was responding to all queries and questions.
