Because there was no other place to draw. If the primitive men made to paint or draw extensively on other surfaces, then it is only the work done on the walls of the caverns that remains. An immeasurable amount of ancient and prehistoric culture simply collapsed into dust. In another aspect, caves were very often used for religious or communal purposes. The paintings were decorations for their enjoyment or for the mystical and religious use. Although it is popular to think that most or all primitive people lived in caves, very few of them actually did.
