Event Description : Celebrated Gond artist Jangarh Singh Shyam’s daughter Japani carries forward her father’s legacy in a solo show titled Tribal Traditions

She is carrying forward the legacy of her father who credited for creating a new school of art in India called the Jangarh Kalam school. 

“I like to delve into the meaning and significance of flora and fauna in Gond art. My world is mostly inhabited by animals and rituals, and I integrate nature through forests in which these animals live.” Like her father then, Japani too narrates stories of nature, though she believes her style is a little different. “That is the beauty of Gond art,” she says, “every artist has their own unique language. While my father had more variation and complexity in his sketching, I draw straighter lines.” Her colour palette is also different. Using darker and subtler shades, Japani’s work is cleaner, quieter and almost meditative.

“My work is nature-based, but my designs are purely by imagination. None of the forest creatures are really a copy of what they look like in real. I sketch free hand and whatever shape the creature takes in my mind, I go freely with it. It should only appeal to me and please my eyes,” she says.
