Folk & Tribal Art

Folk art encompasses art produced from an indigenous culture or by peasants or other laboring tradespeople. It is primarily utilitarian and decorative rather than purely aesthetic. Folk Art is characterized by a naive style, in which traditional rules of proportion and perspective are not employed. Folk and Tribal Art is closely related terms to Outsider Art, Self-Taught Art and Naïve Art.
A key distinction between folk and outsider art is that folk art typically embodies traditional forms and social values, where outsider art stands in some marginal relationship to society's mainstream.
Since the last four decades or so Folk and Tribal art of India has evolved to not only include traditional aesthetics but also encompass contemporary visuals and attitudes making the individual artist the center of their creation and vision. The focus is on individual artist to give their art a new voice and lead it to the new phase of global art and help in the revival of these art forms.

Folk art is an expression of the world’s traditional cultures.

FOLK ART is rooted in traditions that come from community and culture – expressing cultural identity by conveying shared community values and aesthetics.
