Indian Traditional Art Paintings - Kalighat Painting: "Babu & Bibi – Intimate Moments ”," by Swarna Chitrakar - Original Handmade Indian Paintings for Sale in Mojarto - NDTV Art Website - 14"W x 22"H Swarna Chitrakar, an Indian artist, inherited the Bengal patachitra scroll painting tradition (folk art) from her father. Swarna’s paintings depict wide array of themes - stories and tales from Hindu mythology, social issues, female infanticide, trafficking of girls, issues on women empowerment and Babu culture prevalent in Kolkata during British colonial era. She had even depicted incidents such as Tsunami and 9-11 Twin Towers attack in her patachitra scrolls and paintings and composed songs to go along with those scrolls while doing her storytelling. Swarna is also involved in the Kalighat style of painting, and struggling to keep this Indian art form alive. Swarna had exhibited her artwork at major international art festivals and events in countries such as United States, Germany, France, Australia, Sweden and United Kingdom. She hails from a village in Medinipur, India, where she conducts painting workshops in her village community to help the budding future Indian artists take up this traditional cultural heritage of patachitra scroll painting as a passion and a profession.
