Patachitra is an ancient folk art of Bengal, so ancient that it has been mentioned in the Puranas and other early literature. This style of painting is similar to the cave paintings of mohenjodaro, Harappa and Ajanta.
Patachitra, an ancient folk art , is appreciated by art lovers all over the world for its effortless style of drawings, colours, lines and space usage. The world Pata derived from the Sanskrit word Patta means cloth. The painters are called Patuas. Patuas do not just paint, they also sing as they unfurl the painting scroll to show it to the audience. These songs are known as Pater Gaan. The songs are of wide variety ranging from traditional mythological tales and tribal rituals to stories based on modern Indian history and contemporary issues like protecting forests and preventing spread of HIV/AIDS. Patuas generally use natural colours, which they procure from various trees, leaves, flowers and clays.
