Pattachitra Paintings are one of the most famous and oldest art forms of Odisha. The name "Pattachitra" comes from the Sanskrit word Patta which stands canvas or chitra. It is a painting done in canvas with rich and colorful motifs and designs. These paintings showcase simple themes, mostly mythological characters.
With the passing time, the Artisans have gone through a drastic transition. From making painting on Tussar silk and Palm Leaves to using their remarkable talent in painting pure silk sarees, they are trying to preserve this glorious art form of Odisha.
