My Village: handpainted in Saura art by Apindra Swain

“You arrive at a village, and in this calm environment, one starts to hear echo.”
-Yannick Noah

A tribal artform from eastern India, Saura art started out with its ritualistic beginnings on the walls of village homes, to become one of the most beautiful artforms that India is proud of. For the Sauras, whose language does not have a script, their art is a record of their history, their philosophy and religious practices.

Hailing from the village of Raghurajpur, the village of pattachitra artists in India, Apindra Swain's family has been painting for generations. He is one artist who is trying to find a new path for this traditional art form and works on modern artifacts like kettles, bottles and experiments with changing the art form like incorporating calligraphy within pattachitra art. To continue the legacy of pattachitra in new and interesting ways is his dream
