Pattachitra

Indigenous to the eastern Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha, the folk art form of Pattachitra is a reflection of India’s glorious past.

The artists - who are called Patuas - have immortalised religious, mythical, and folklore instances in scrolls of fabric. They use bright bold natural colours and a distinctive art style that is rooted in rural tradition.

In a traditional performance, the Patuas unfurl the scroll as they sing their Pater Gaan and mesmerise the audience as they transport them to a land of myth and legends.
