The Gond tribe is one of the largest tribal communities in India. These tribals live in Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Bihar, Maharashtra, Odisha, and Andhra Pradesh. The main occupation of the Gond tribe is agriculture or daily wages.

The word Gond comes from ‘Kond’ which means green mountains and tribal people are called Gondis as they live mainly in the lush green mountains of Madhya Pradesh.

Artist Profile

Born: 1987

Hometown: Bhopal

Based in: Bhopal

This original Gond work by Rahul Singh Shyam depicts the fishing skills of a water raven. The water raven flies over the river and unfurls its wings like an umbrella, thereby preventing sunshine from reaching the water. The fish are deceived into believing that the sun has set and nightfall has descended. Hence, they become less active and more languorous in their movements. This is the perfect set-up for the water raven to swoop and pluck the fish out of the water.
Rahul Singh Shyam is an emerging Gond artist, who apprenticed under the great Bhajju Shyam. We did a fascinating interview with him, which you can read here. Rahul's vibrant work represents nature's ways through depictions of everyday incidences in the lives of animals, birds, and trees.
