About the Artwork +

Refined artist Chetan Gangavane's Chitrakathi Painting, "A Glimpse of Ramayana," transports to a world where art becomes storytelling. This captivating art form hails from the Maharashtra-Karnataka region, where 'Chitra' (painting) and 'katha' (story) entwine seamlessly. Each painting in the series is a chapter in an epic narrative, and together, more than 50 pieces create a pothi, used by artists to vividly recount the Ramayana. The colors are both vibrant and symbolic, employing a rich palette to evoke emotions, while intricate patterns and motifs unravel the timeless saga. Gangavane's Chitrakathi painting breathes life into ancient traditions, preserving the beauty of oral storytelling through art.

    Chitrakathi


    "Chitrakathi Paintings," originating from Maharashtra and with a history spanning 300 to 400 years, are a captivating fusion of visual storytelling. The name itself, derived from "Chitra" (picture) and "Kathi" or "Katha" (story), perfectly encapsulates the essence of these performances, seamlessly blending the art of storytelling with intricate painting. Preserved by the Thakkar tribal community of Maharashtra, this endangered art form unfolds on individual painted sheets, bundled together as "pothis," each bundle weaving a cohesive narrative. These performances typically grace festive occasions at village temples in the Konkan region of Maharashtra. The oral narratives, deeply rooted in texts like the Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Puranas, are presented in a Keertan-style, accompanied by folk instruments like the dholki and veena.
