Hi! I am Mantu Chitrakar. I was born on 18th October 1973 in a Village of West Bengal. I have learned this art of Pattachitra painting 34 years ago from my brother Sri Gurupada Chitrakar.
My paintings include pictures of the ancient history of Hindus, Gods, Goddesses, Environment and Social Events. The story in our paintings is often narrated in the form of songs by us.
I have participated in various exhibitions like Australian Indian Cultural Exchange, FASA, Surajkund Mela, etc. My deepest ambition is to spread this art in each corner of the world. I received the World Craft Council Award in 2014-15 in Indonesia.
