Patachitra



Patachitra is a vibrant folk art form native to Orissa, a state in eastern India. This famous ethnic painting was born out of the cult of Jagannath Dev - the presiding deity of Orissa. Incredible pictorial conceptions, characteristic conventions and vibrant colors make the Patachitra a unique treasure in the rich coffer of Indian traditional art. Executed primarily on cloth, using natural colors, these handcrafted paintings have charmed admirers from all over the world.
