Baaya Design Presents an interactive session which is a combination of a visual presentation in English by Shibani Jain and Vishpala Naik Hundekari with the live performance by the Senior Chitakathi artist Shri Puroshottam Gangavane and his team. The workshop will also have discussion about the changes in the medium, theme and application through the years. This will be followed with a workshop on Chitrakathi drawing and painting techniques, themes conducted by the Chitrakathi artist himself.
Chitra means pictures and Kathi means story. Chitrakathi is a performing art form from the Sindhudurg District of Maharashtra performed by the Thakar adivasis.
Today Chitrakathi is a dying artform, but in the 12th century it was one of the main sources of entertainments where stories from Ramayan, Mahabharat and the Puranas were told with the help of hand-made paintings and songs and verses.
