About the Artwork +

This detailed Pattachitra painting by Apaindra Swain portrays the ten incarnations (Dashavatara) of Lord Vishnu. The rectangular composition is intricately divided into three sections, each filled with vibrant mythological imagery and celestial motifs. The upper and lower sections of the painting illustrate several of Lord Vishnu’s avatars, showcasing his diverse forms taken to restore cosmic order. The central portion features a series of concentric circles. These circles are adorned with celestial beings, floral patterns, and intricate motifs, creating a dynamic and harmonious visual effect. At the heart of the central circle, Lord Krishna is depicted sitting on a tree beside the Yamuna River, playing his flute. This scene is iconic, symbolizing divine love and cosmic music. Surrounding Krishna, the Gopis (cowherd girls) are shown reaching out to him, expressing their devotion and longing. This depiction captures the essence of Bhakti (devotional worship) in Hindu tradition. The primary use of monochrome with selective vibrant colors such as yellow, green, and red creates a striking visual contrast, emphasizing the key elements and figures in the painting. Overall, Apaindra Swain blends his artistry with rich Hindu mythological narratives in this exquisite artwork

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. 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. One of the distinguishing features of Pattachitra is the meticulous and fine line work. The lines are precise and intricate, contributing to the detailed and elaborate nature of the paintings. The origins of Pattachitra can be traced back to the 5th century B.C.  as evidenced by similarities found in ancient murals at religious centers such as Puri, Konark, and Bhubaneswar in Odisha. Traditionally, this art form holds significant importance in the worship and rituals of Lord Jagannath. During the annual Rath Yatra (Chariot Festival), when the deities Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Subhadra are taken out of the temple, Pattachitra paintings are used to adorn the chariots. 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. Apaindra Swain, Manoranjan Chitrakar, and Gitanjali Das are some of the notable artists actively practicing this art form.
