mayur & tushar vayeda 'the eyes of forests'
Exhibition from September 7 to October 21, 2023
Mayur & Tushar Vayeda are two brothers born in the Warli tribe, one in 1987 the other in 1992. Their grandfather founded the first school in their village of Ganjad (Maharashtra, India) and their mother is a teacher. Both have advanced education in Mumbai. After completing their studies, the two brothers have decided to leave the megacity to return to their homeland and participate in the vitalization of their own culture.
Their paintings retain this fineness and sensitivity of the most beautiful Warli works. They renew the represented subjects by drawing on the popular stories told to them by their mother Grand mother and other elders from the villages, but also on art history.
Their questioning on our world give to their art the magnificent paradox of being at the same time completely on the tradition and fully in the current debates, mainly the relation of Human to nature.

In 2023, the India Art Fair has entrusted them with the artistic direction of the façade of the Fair's three tents. They have recently created large-scale murals in Delhi and Mumbai.
