The Struggle of Tribal Artist in India
Most of us who are visiting this website are doing well in life. During Lockdown also we survived easily. But for Tribal Artists things are completely different. Most of them are in very bad situation. Some Artist have move to big cities in a hope of better life Sadly most of them ended in a bad financial situation, living in slums. Those artist who were left behind in village in deep forest were struggling more as they didn’t even have reach to buyers.
Most of the Artist I have meet have being struggling their whole life. They are not very educated and end up selling their art very cheap. Many are being cheated by middleman.
I met a family of artist who were on the verge of giving up this ancient art of painting. Many artist have moved to petty jobs.
