The story of Krishna, handpainted in pattachitra art by Purusottam Swain
Hailing from the village of Raghurajpur, the village of pattachitra artists in India, Purusottam Swain's family has been painting for generations.
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.
