Durga Bai Vyam
About The Artist
Durga Bai Vyam (Dindori-M.P.) is a Pardhan Gond artist from Bhopal. She started her journey, by making Dignas, colourful clay patterns drawn on walls, at the age of six, as early as in 1996 at an artist's camp organized by Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya, Bhopal. At the age of 15, Durgabai married Subhash Vyam, a clay and wood sculptor. Durgabai’s artistic career has flourished even further not only by her marriage to Subhash Vyam but also by the veteran Gond Artist, Jangarh Singh Shyam. For the Kochi Muziris Biennale 2018, this artist couple had created an experimental graphic narrative on marine plywood, giving the traditional Gond wall art another dimension.
