THE STORY
Pattachitra is a traditional art form from Odisha and is based on Hindu mythology. The art work is specially inspired by Lord Jagannath and the Vaishnava cult and all the colours used are naturally obtained. This collection features pattachitra art work by Debasis Sethi, on silk cloth, the traditional palm leaf and canvas. Having learnt this art form from his guru in Odisha nearly 13 years ago, he yearns to bring new life to this traditional & intricate art-form.

Palm leaf pattachitra (or Tala Pattachitra  in Oriya) is created by first waiting for all the leaves to dry out after being taken from tree. These are then sewn together to form a canvas. The images are traced by using black or white ink to fill grooves etched on rows of equal-sized panels of palm leaf that are sewn together. These panels can also be easily folded like a fan and packed in a compact pile for better conservation.
