The gonds residing in the green hills of the village patangarh, Madhya pradesh produce one of the most vibrant traditions through their art that translates their culture and folklores into gond paintings. To understand this I visited the gond village of patangarh and interacted with the artists who shared their experiences with me, their stories that give birth to their art. While interaction with the local artists, I got to know more about their everday routine, their art methods and various challenges related to their everyday lifestyle. Based on these observations and the secondary research, I decided to come up with an illustrative publication that would display their life and art in the form of gond narration as the people in the metropolitan cities are less aware about these tribes and gond art which is one of the major challenge faced by them as their art is not providing them enough monetary returns hence most of the artists are either farmers or are found doing odd jobs to support their livelihood and art supplies. The project would inlclude understanding and developing a narration based on the gond elements.
