Pattachitra style of painting is one of the oldest and most popular folk art forms of Odisha. The name Pattachitra has evolved from the Sanskrit words patta, meaning canvas, and chitra, meaning picture. This art form too finds its strong roots in the traditions of Lord Jagannath, the presiding deity of Orissa. The creation of the Pattachitra paintings is a disciplined art form, and the chitrakars maintain rigidity in their use of colours and patterns, restricting the colours to a single tone.
