More Details:

Gond art is unique to it's namesake Adivasi community in Madhya Pradesh. The artist communities are also spread across Andhra, Orissa & Maharashtra. The art is inspired by the communities reverence of nature, it's trees, animals, water bodies, mountains & more. The art & it's stories are thus sacred.
Originally the Gond community painted their homes. Making paintings and decorating functional items commercially came much later, in the 20th century.
Mithilesh Shyam started painting when he was eight years old. While they are from the Gond community, his parents were not artists. They were construction workers. One of his uncles realized Mithilesh had artistic talent and took him under his wing. Since then Mithilesh has struggled between painting & doing odd jobs for sustenance. His focus is commendable as is his art. He has so far showcased work in Delhi in the Taj Hotel, the Lodhi art district & the National Crafts Museum. He has done commissioned work for Rohit Duggal, Latika Nath, Ajay Jain & even Rajeev Sethi of the Asian Heritage Foundation.
Roshni Shyam, his wife is a huge support and also paints up quite a storm.
