Dhawat Singh did an M. Tech and was working when the call Gond paintings became so pronounced that he left his job and began to paint. Before his marriage, he had never painted. He had seen Jangarh Singh Shyam’s paintings and was drawn to them but never though he would paint. When he got married to Jangarh Singh Shyam’s daughter, he found everyone around him, painting the whole day. Soon he began to paint and realized how much joyful it was. Very soon, Dhawat created a space for himself. The animal world and the world of tales are his main motifs. Having spent most of his life in the city, Dhawat had never known about Gond culture so well. The world of painting has given him a firm rooting in Gond culture and art.
