Biography

Anil ChaityaVangad hails from a small Warli tribal village in Maharashtra north of the cosmopolitan city of Mumbai. He has been painting for the last 18 years in the traditional art style of the Warlis, experimenting with themes of gods and goddesses as well as the more contemporary issues of our times. It was the artist’s mother who influenced and taught him how to paint.                                                                                                                     

He still prefers to use the traditional mediums of gerue, cow dung, charcoal, and rice paste without the use of use synthetic dyes and paints in his paintings and encourages his family members to do the same.

He is not just passionate about painting but also about farming which is the traditional occupation of the Warlis.
