Artist

Purusottam

Purusottam Swain blue-tick

Hailing from the village of Raghurajpur (the heritage village of Pattachitra artists), Purusottam Swain is a young 26 year old generational Pattachitra artist who has been painting for the last 40 years since he was in the 4th standard. He has learnt from his father who was also a Pattachitra artist. His work is coveted by patrons across the world, he has received a certificate of appreciation by the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath and been a part of many events like the Bharat Lok Parv.

The name Pattachitra has evolved from the Sanskrit words patta, meaning canvas, and chitra, meaning picture. Originally from Odisha, Pattachitra is thus a painting done on canvas, and is manifested by rich colourful application, creative motifs and designs, and portrayal of simple themes, mostly mythological in depiction. More than anything, the themes are clearly the essence of the art form, conceptualising the meaning of the paintings.



Saura Art


The art-form of Odisha's Saura tribe has hundreds of years of history. Saura, also known as Ikon, are paintings that date back to the epic period of Mahabharata and Ramayana. They are mostly done on red or brown clay walls that were originally inhabited by the Saura people and employ natural colours created from grains, flowers, and other natural materials. These paintings have carried the Saura people's history with them. Not only are these detailed and beautiful images a method for the tribe to describe and document their life, but they also have religious and spiritual importance for the community. In current times, the art form has been adopted to adorn clothes such as sarees and has found an overall decorative approach.
