Indian folk art goes back many a mile and a century. It has seen sufficient transformations since its inception, which has been many centuries ago. It has evolved with time, but has always been an integral part of the rich Indian heritage. It has constantly been a part and parcel of the societal transformations that have taken place. They include paintings, which are an integral part of the tribal tradition and have often mirrored the lifestyle and traditions of the era. They are replete with the depictions of fairs, festivals, gods & goddesses, the bonding and social dynamics that was prevalent in those times. These also depict the daily village life, customs, rituals, birds, animals and the elements of nature and earth.

Indian Tribal Art Awareness
The Indian folk art includes wall paintings, calendar paintings, oil classics, cave paintings, miniatures etc. They in turn trace their roots to different schools namely Madhubani, Patachitra, Gond, Warli, Tanjore, which originate from different parts of India. The states of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Tamil Nadu were major centers for Indian folk art.

Over the years they have found worldwide appreciation and admiration from art connoisseurs.

It has definitely caught the eye of the discerning few, and has received a fillip from the government of India and other interest groups occasionally. The potential is immense, which has not been exactly tapped. The aesthetic sensibilities and refined energy that Indian folk art carries has a great potential in the international market and audiences.
