The farmer's calendar

The Patachitra Chitrakars in Odisha mostly live in villages and are deeply connected to the agrarian way of life; some of them are also seasonal farmers. In The farmer’s calendar, the Chitrakar shows the farmer’s life over a year - the farming activities, the festivals, the full moon Purnimas, etc. composed on a radial grid.

Base colours are filled in on the canvas, where the entire composition is detailed out in pencil. Master Artisans often  paint directly onto the canvas.

Each Pattachitra painting is often finished by a team of several Chitrakars - each working at a separate stage.
