ABOUT THE ARTIST- Rahim Chitrakar (Master Artisan) 

Rahim Chitrakar is a leading, young Patachitra artist from Pingla block of Paschim Medinipur district. His father is master artist Dukhushyam Chitrakar who is respected by the whole community.

Patuas practice the ancient folk art of painting patachitra or scrolls. The Patua community of West Bengal has practised the ancient craft of patachitra since the 13th Century. The traditional painters would wander from village to village, entertaining and educating village folks. They would unroll each hand-painted scroll, frame by frame, and sing pater gaan or narrative songs that they had composed themselves.

This is an original art piece and not a print. The song video will be sent to separately via email upon purchase of this artwork.
