About Kailash Kumar Pradhan
Kailash Kumar Pradhan from Madhya Pradesh is a Gond Tribal Painting artist. Initially, Kailash like all his peers focused on his education and was keen to get into a regular job. Between 2007-2010, Kailash got the opportunity to help his uncle, a Gond Tribal Painting artist himself, that opened a new opportunity for him.
As Kailash continued to pursue the traditional route of completing his education and landing himself a safe and secure job, he realised his passion lay in Gond Tribal Painting which he then took up as a full time job and hasn’t looked back ever since. His painting is based on traditional culture and day to day life. He now paints on dupattas, bamboo pen holders, wooden jewellery boxes, tea coasters, canvas and much more. He has now gotten his wife involved too and looks forward to innovating this art form.
