Shilpa’s artwork focuses on the two types of tribal art from India: Warli and Madhubani. Warli originates from the state of Maharashtra. Artists there use white chalk with their hands on clay walls to recreate scenes of daily life. Madhubani originates from the Mithila region in northern India and Nepal, and reconstructs mythological scenes and the natural world.
Douglas County Libraries supports the arts by featuring stunning public art and donating display space at select branches for local artists.
