The Warli style 'graffiti'. Warli painting takes its name from India's Warli indigenous tribe (Adivasi) that inhabit the Maharashtra-Gujarat border and surroundinh areas. Their ancient form of wall painting goes back, according to Wikipedia, upto 5000 years and is full of symbolic meanings. The paintings that are recognizable by their geometric patterns, were used mainly for specific occasions and rituals up until 1970s. The painting in the photo is on a wall that surrounds a wall of a water pond that was rehabilitated by students and citizen efforts in Salem, India, after being used as a garbage area by a neighboring temple. #wallart #wallpainting #urbanart #art #warli #warlipainting #indigenous #india #adivasi #graffiti #streetart
