Rajesh Vangad

Artist Rajesh Vangad

Rajesh Vangad was born in 1975 in Ganjad village in Dahanu, Maharashtra. He is a bearer of the Warli style of painting, which is a traditional form of painting belonging to the indigenous people of Warli. He learnt the art at a young age from his parents—particularly his mother; and later from masters like Jivya Soma Mashe. He has painted noteable murals at the Craft Museum, New Delhi, the Homi Bhaba Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai and the T2 Terminal at the International Airport in Mumbai. His work has been exhibited across India and internationally in the UK, Spain and Japan. Vangad has published three books: My Gandhi Story (Tulika Books), Kabir Saamagri (part of Kabir Project) and The Indian Crafts Journey, as well as a map of Maharashtra (Dastkaar Haat Samiti). He has conducted workshops on Warli painting with students in Pune and New Delhi, among other places. Since 2013 he has been working on a collaborative series with the photographer Gauri Gill, Fields of Sight, which has been exhibited across the world including at Documenta 14, Kassel;  the 7th Moscow Biennale, Clouds⇄Forests, Moscow and Prospect 4: The Lotus In Spite Of The Swamp, New Orleans.
