Answer the following questions in detail.

Write in detail about folk styles of painting.

Answer :

Folk styles of painting generally depict the life style, culture, tradition, etc., of a particular place or region. From Madhubani to Kalamkari, the folk style of painting has been practiced in different parts of India. These paintings are unique and are culturally different from each other. These are generally made of soil, mud, leaves, and charcoal on a piece of cloth, canvas or even paper. The colourful paint is made out of natural dyes.


Madhubani from Bihar, Phad from Rajasthan, Warli paintings by the Warli tribes from the western ghats, Gond paintings by the Gondi tribes in Madhya Pradesh, Kalamkari from the Andhra Pradesh, the famous Tanjore paintings from Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu are some of the classic examples of the folk style of painting.


Rock paintings generally have human and animal figures. The transition from stone age to the advent of agriculture has been clearly portrayed and is known from the figures and colours that have been used. Even the culture of decorating the house walls and courtyards by drawing various figures using paintings aided the development of folk paintings.
