Pattachitra


Pattachitra is a traditional art form practiced in the eastern states of Odisha, West Bengal, and parts of Bangladesh. Typically it is a scroll painting where stories are painted in panels on a long scroll made of cloth. It is the family heirloom passed from the generation where Patua (painters of Patta) perform the songs (Pater Gaan) narrated in the scroll. This centuries-old tradition is the ode to lord Jagganath in Odisha but mainly illustrates the stories from Hindu mythologies like Ramayana, Mahabharatha, Geet Govind, and Bhagwad Geeta amongst others. Method and Technique As old as the tradition is, the making procedure of Pattachitra also follows the conventional style of preparing the artwork. At first, a mixture of powdered chalk and tamarind seed glue is applied over a canvas cloth and later rubbed to make the surface smooth. After the surface has been prepared, the artist begins the process of drawing the figures, directly with a bamboo brush, either in light red or yellow color, and later fills colors in the drawing. Pattachitra painters typically use natural colors like Ramaraja (indigo), Hingula (a mineral used for red), Haritala (yellow), Kala (lamp black), Sankha (white), and Geru. At the end, another layer of recycled fabric is added to the back of the painting to increase durability. After all the colors are filled, the Pattachitras are varnished using lacquer to protect them from the weather and give a glossy finish.
