About Art Form

Patua Painting is a form of Scroll Painting indigenous to West Bengal, a state in India. They narrate mythological and historical stories and are a part of an elaborate cultural performance, where they are unrolled while the story accomp0anying the pictures is sung. They paint Hindu stories in their scrolls. The Patvas of Mednipore (West Bengal) have practiced this art for centuries and have adapted their art form according to the needs of the time, which has ensured that patva painting is one of the few surviving indigenous art forms of the region.
