The Warlis live in the Thane district of Maharashtra, and have a painting tradition that dates back several centuries. Originally painted on the walls of their huts with cow dung, mud and rice paste, Warli paintings are now widely recognized for their spare colours, geometric forms and figures and economy of detail.

Balu Jivya Mashe is the younger son of Jivya Soma Mashe, a name synonymous with Warli art. Following in the footsteps of his father, Balu's narrative paintings communicate the daily events, folk lore and ritual practices of the Warli community in a rhythmic and visually appealing way.
