SUBHAS SINGH – BHIL ARTIST of MADHYA PRADESH
Subhas Bhil, Gangu Bai’s son, has been painting for the past 4 years. He was inspired to paint by his mother. He works in Bhopal on daily wages. When Subhash became a father, he painted birds with their chicks and animals with their young. When he goes to Jhabua, he paints gatlas, gad bapsi and gal bapsi. He sometimes depicts only the wooden frames of the gad bapsi, or gal bapsi, as they are before the people arrive. Subhas Bhil’s brothers, Dinesh and Rakesh have also taken up painting and their favourite motifs are animal and birds.
