Kalighat & Santhal Live Workshop - Aug to Oct


Kalighat & Santhal Live Workshop - Aug to Oct

Kalighat Paintings are said to have originated from the Kalighat area of Kolkata, earlier it portrayed Goddess Kali and her tales of defeating the demons. Later, the paintings evolved to the depiction of various other Gods and Goddesses and their tales.

Santhal paintings are drawn by a special community called Jadu Patuas or magic painters in the Santhal Paragana district of Bengal/Bihar borders. The painters are called magic painters because they paint to preserve crops, avert diseases, honour the dead and so on. These paintings are characterized by a directness and a child like simplicity in the depiction of birds, animals and insects. The figures are static, frequently multicolor, artistic rather than realistic projections.

As a part of Kalighat & Santhal Masterclass, Catterfly Art Curators curates diverse themes along with native artists. Typically, we will pick up at least 3-4 new themes for weekly/weekend workshops. We work with Mr Samir Chitrakar who lives in Midnapur of WB and work with him to support economic and local empowerment in the region. We constantly strive to onboard and support more artists as a part of Catterfly Social Impact initiative.
