About the Artwork +

In this exquisite Pattachitra Painting, the timeless narrative of Lord Ram's coronation in Ayodhya unfolds with breathtaking detail. Every character from the epic Ramayana, including Ram and Sita, graces the canvas, meticulously depicted in vibrant hues. The intricate brushwork showcases the unparalleled skill and dedication of the artist, Purushottam Swain, whose mastery brings the ancient tale to life. Through delicate strokes, the artist captures the essence of each scene, evoking a sense of reverence and awe. From the majestic presence of Lord Ram to the graceful demeanor of Sita, every figure exudes an aura of divine splendor. It is a testament to the Chitrakars' unparalleled craftsmanship, and their ability to translate mythological narratives into visual masterpieces that resonate with viewers across generations. This Pattachitra Painting stands as a testament to the enduring allure of Ramayana and the timeless artistry of its storytellers.

Pattachitra, among the most revered art forms, thrives predominantly in Odisha and West Bengal, tracing its roots back to the 12th century. The name itself, derived from Sanskrit, translates to "cloth picture," embodying the essence of this ancient tradition. Chitrakars, the skilled artists behind Pattachitra, specialize in depicting Hindu mythological icons on canvas, with themes ranging from the divine abode of Jagannath to the playful exploits of Lord Krishna as a child.Central to Pattachitra's essence is its disciplined approach, governed by strict rules and conventions. Each piece boasts a floral border and employs solely natural hues, lending it a distinctive charm. The preparation of the canvas, or "patta," involves a meticulous process of coating cloth with a chalk and tamarind seed gum mixture, ensuring a suitable surface for the intricate artwork. Bold, sharp lines characterize the figures, confined to a limited array of postures, devoid of expansive landscapes or distant vistas. This blend of folk and classical elements creates a unique visual language, unmistakably Pattachitra. Over time, Pattachitra has embraced innovation, expanding its canvas to include palm leaves, tussar silk, sarees, bags, and various artifacts. Yet, amidst this evolution, the core principles of the art form remain unyielding, a testament to its timeless allure and enduring legacy.

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.


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.
