Suman Chitrakar is a young Patua Artist from West Bengal. He started painting nine years ago at the age of twenty with his mentor Jagdevji. Suman has been creatively infusing new themes to the traditional art form to create a distinctive style of his own. Suman carries the lineage of ‘folk’ artists who paint long, vertical scrolls and compose verses. His artwork has featured in two books – one book on Bono Bibi of the Sunderbans and another on the life of Savitribai Phule published by Azim Premji University. Suman has conducted workshops on Bengal Pattachitra in Delhi with the Happy Hands Foundation, in Kolkata with Eastern Zonal Cultural Centre, an organization under Ministry of Culture at a workshop organized at the Victoria Memorial Hall, and in Goa with the Kala Academy.
Suman will engage the participants in an exploration of the Patachitra (Scroll Painting) performance tradition and enable them to create new performative pieces based on their world of imagination that they imbibe from their social and cultural environment. The storytelling and singing by Suman would help participants create new stories and turn them into performances, thereby instilling in participants the confidence to imagine the performative aspect of the Bengal painting’s tradition.
The workshop will be followed by a sale of Masterpieces by the Artisans.
