Jangarh Singh Shyam the famous Gont artist went out to find a new tribal art tradition. Three artists who are his classificatory grandchildren have painted the Gond panels in the Crafts Museum - Chandrakali Poyam with her brother Rajendra Kumar Uike, and Sunil Shyam. The Bhil and Gond artists make a departure from the monochromatic palette that dominates the outer wall of the building, next to the shop. While still keeping to their ‘traditional’ canon of forest creatures, the Gond artists have restrained their natural exuberance and love for bright colours by using sober shades of grey, maroon and white.
