Bhaskar Chitrakar The name “kalighat pata” is applied to a class of paintings and drawings on paper produced by a group of artists called ‘patuas’ in the neighbourhood of the famous Kali Temple at Kalighat in Calcutta in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In recent times, Bhaskar Chitrakar of Kalighat, is reviving this style. Inspired by his grandfather, he has decided to create paintings in the same tradition. The artist is very young but the style is old. This work is part of his “Babu-Bibi” series, where the artist has created a humorous semi-satirical painting of the rich and educated Bengali babus apeing the lifestyle of their Western counterparts. This Contemporary Kalighat shows a Babu at leisure, like the Babus of old, smoking a hookah, fanning himself, his pet cat at his feet.
