Concept: Payatkar painting is a primitive art tradition practised by the ‘Chitrakar/Paitkar’ community of village Amadubi of East Singhbhum, Jharkhand. The scrolls are of vertical form and the painters are referred to as ‘Chitrakars’. The chitrakars exhibit their scrolls in a torytelling manner. With a display of layered narration, (often beginning with introductory songs to accompany a sequence of unfolding events) these scrolls have an intrinsic flavour of local oral history.
