⁣ Beautiful & Creative Sohrai Art and Warli Art

Sohrai Art and Warli Art- The Lasting Impression

Artisans- Satyam Kumar Lal


Sohrai is a harvest festival of the Indian states of Jharkhand, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, and West Bengal. It also called cattle festival. It is celebrated after harvest and coincide with festival of Diwali. It is celebrated by Prajapati, Kurmi, Santal, Munda and Oraons among others

Warli painting is a style of tribal art mostly created by the tribal people from the North Sahyadri Range in Maharashtra, India. This range encompasses cities such as Dahanu, Talasari, Jawhar, Palghar, Mokhada, Vikramgad of Palghar district.


One of the great artists is Satyam Kumar Lal who has passed from CUJ (Central University of Jharkhand) and he is exploring his artwork through social media. He shared few experiencing life with us during the Interview. He is working with Warli art, Sohrai art, pencil sketching and working since 3 to 4 years since he joined with Shilpkaari and started Sohrai and Warli art.


Presently he is also working on sketching of face and other sketch sketching using pencil and Sohrai and Warli painting normally with acrylic paint on cardboard papers, wood, Mat, Jute, Sac, Suppa etc. He is working at the main canvas artist in Shilpkaari. Since childhood cartooning and sketching was his primary hobbies and professionally now he started his art and painting after joining Shilpkaari 3 to 4 years back. As soon as Shilpkaari started, his professional career also started undoubtedly since his first painting order was through shilpkaari. Presently I want to get more experienced in professional career since I had not attained a formal education on art and I want to focus more on painting and other arts and need more learning from different artists in order to gain more confidentwould like to learn from best artist and gain more confidence and opportunity to ensure that I have achieved my professional career in this artwork


Regarding Pandemic strike of Covid-19 has affected much more in my career life. Due to lockdown I was stuck in Lucknow and there was lack of material due to which I was unable to complete the art. And second thing is that I totally lost the connection with different place, different artists through which I could get an experience. Artwork order also hampered. I would expect that as soon as lockdown ends, I will be back in Ranchi , my career life would be back to normal as before and I would expect more experience life


In 2018, Lok Manthan was organised in Ranchi and his artwork painting where order from Shilpkaari which were used to decorate the main hall which is at main exhibition area. His painting was also ordered for stall for selling. During Interview he also stated that he also attended other exhibitions like at ISM(Dhanbad),Khadi Day(CUJ), TISS(Mumbai).

From the view of my business I want to thank Shilpkaari who gave the opportunities to construct the career in this artwork on traditions of India. Shilpkaari actually works for artisans to develop better connections with customer and I have experienced from them. I would feel proud that I am connected to this Startup.
