About the Artwork +

Manoranjan Chitrakar, Bengal Pattachitra artist exquisitely fashions Santhal dancing on brass metal glasses, appreciated for the individual contributions to the cultural landscape of the region. Santhal is one of the largest indigenous tribal communities in India, and their dances hold immense cultural significance. Santhal dances are a means of social bonding within the community. They are performed during weddings, festivals, and other social gatherings, promoting unity and a sense of belonging among the Santhal people. Santhal dance and Bengal Pattachitra art are both expressions of the rich cultural diversity found in West Bengal, existing side by side as parallel cultural forms, with each representing diverse angles of the region’s heritage.

Manoranjan Chitrakar blue-tick

Manoranjan
"In West Bengal, the word chitrakar refers to pattachitra painters. We have taken Chitrakar as our last name for hundreds of years" says Manoranjan aka Manu Chitrakar, who has been painting for 30 years since the age of 15. He enjoys depicting societal themes in his works. Manuji has travelled across India, as well as to Sweden and Paris. The Bengal Pattachitra is a visual and oral art tradition practised by West Bengal's Patuas or Chitrakars. Patua painters, who are Muslim by faith, represent a distinct and secular art history. They make a living by painting and singing stories from Hindu mythology, local folklore, Sufi tradition, and modern issues. Though the origins of the Patua tradition have been difficult for art historians to trace, some suggest the oral form dates back to the 10th or 11th century CE. The physical evidence of a scroll, on the other hand, does not occur until the 18th century CE.
