“It is not just an art, it is an important aspect of life. In these parts, you associate Chittara right from birth ; most of the auspicious rituals, like the naming ceremony of a child, happen under the wall that has a Chittara painting This art form has documented how man has evolved and became civilised. And it will continue to do so”. Says Ishwar Naik Ji, a national award winner for Chittara Art. Traditionally while Chittara paintings are done by women, Ishwar Naik is one of the few men who has learnt this art form from his mother . “ I had to research it for five years consistently to find reasons behind the use of colours and lines. Keeping all this in mind I painted my ‘Aradhana chitra’ for which I won my national award. In this picture, I depicted everything I had learnt – respect, respect for fellow humans, respect for nature, all things that are part of life”, he says explaining his motivation behind reviving Chittara.

It is engaged primarily by the Women folk of the community as a socio-cultural practice, which embodies a microcosm of socio-cultural dynamic.
