Chittara is a unique art form practiced by the Deevaru community, a close-knit group living in the serene surroundings of Sagar, Karnataka. They have a rich heritage of matriarchal and agrarian living. This art primarily involves women and reflects their cultural and social dynamics. Nestled in the lush Western Ghats of North Canara, Chittara paintings are intricate designs that symbolize significant ceremonies and life's rituals, often portrayed through simple geometric shapes. For the Deevaru women, creating Chittara paintings is a source of joy, beauty, and creativity, and they take great pride in their traditions, which strengthen their social bonds and cultural practices. These artworks hold a lasting value and provide a delightful escape from the fast pace of urban life.
