Fine Art Print FAQs
Created in 2015. “The Bengal Patachitra” is a traditional folk art from West Bengal, India and the artists who create this wonderful traditional art are known as the “Patuas” or “Chitrakars” of West Bengal. “Patuas” tell the stories of Hindu mythology, Sufi tradition, and several local folklore through their paintings. It is unknown to art historians about the actual origin of the “Patua Tradition”. Although these artists are having an Islamic faith but they create a secular & distinctive traditional folk art form that is representative of Bengal's rich culture and heritage. This folk art form is internationally known for its visual storytelling, vibrant colors, lines, and strokes. In this photograph, a lady patua is creating a patachitra on a baked clay pot at a stall during a handicraft fair in Bardhaman, West Bengal, India.
