LADO BAI – BHIL ARTIST of MADHYA PRADESH
Lado Bai works as an artist at the Adivasi Lok Kala Academy. She started painting on canvases at the same time as Bhuri Bai of Pitol. She has returned to painting after a long time, as financial constraints prevented her from pursuing her art. Through the years, she has received support and encouragement from the noted artist, J Swaminathan. Her job as an artist at the Adivasi Lok Kala Academy now allows Lado Bai to paint all the images she has been wanting to for so many years. Lado Bai’s main motifs are the animal kingdom and Bhil rituals and festivals.
