The Art – PattaChita Paintings

The base for the PattaChitra is created using threads from an old
saree that is then mixed with chalk, tamarind seeds, and a gum-like
resin from the bark of a local tree. After the drying process, the base
of the PattaChitra is ready to be painted upon.

The colors used are also 100% natural. The colors are extracted
from rocks, lamp black, Indigo, Conch Shells, and so on. The natural
gum of a fruit called ‘kaitha’ is mixed with the colors along with
water to ensure the colors stay fast.

The Artist – Bijay Kumar Mohapatra

A National Merit Award winner, Bijay’s paintings have been exhibited
in many well- known galleries. His Pattachitra painting on Ramayana
was exhibited at the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya,
Bhopal. In 2008 and 2009, his Patta Chitra was displayed at the
Barabati Nrutya Ustav in Cuttack.
Most recently, his work was displayed at an art exhibition at the Sri Sri
University. Bijay has received the Rajiv Gandhi Sadbhavana Award
from the Rajiv Gandhi Forum. His artwork has found a place in a
children’s book “Srujamyham” published in four languages by Pacad
Comics, Bhubaneswar.

Bijay now runs an Institution in Orissa where he trains young
children in this art. If you get a chance to speak with him ever, you
will realize his passion to keep this art form alive. earning money
from this painting comes a distant second in his mind.
The proceeds from this painting will go towards running of this
institution and more importantly keeping this beautiful
traditional art from Orissa alive.
