This Art Gives Bengal More To Boast About

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and Bengal lives by these words. The artistic testament of this culture’s rich legacy are Kalighat paintings. History lesson 101: This style of hand-made paintings were produced by a group of artists called ‘Patuas’ in the neighbourhood of the famous Kali temple at Kalighat in Kolkata. The beauty of the folk art of Kalighat is that it is not divorced from life. Themes range from events of burning interest, mythology, social oddities and idiosyncrasies, follies and foibles of people. Now this tradition, that is proudly being passed down generations, is available to you at the click of a button on Mojarto. Find your favourite work today!
