Patachitra or Pattachitra is a general term for traditional, cloth-based scroll painting, based in the eastern Indian states of Odisha, West Bengal and parts of Bangladesh. Patachitra artform is known for its intricate details as well as mythological narratives and folktales inscribed in it. Pattachitra is a component of an ancient Bengali narrative art, originally serving as a visual device during the performance of a song. The Bengal Patachitra is divided into some different aspects like Durga Pat, Chalchitra, Tribal Patachitra, Medinipur Patachitra, and Kalighat Patachitra. The subject matter of Bengal Patachitra is mostly mythological, religious stories, folk lore and social. The Kalighat Patachitra, the last tradition of Bengal Patachitra is developed by Jamini Roy. The artist of the Bengal Patachitra is called Patua.

Traditionally Pattachitra were drawn or painted on paper scrolls or as a painting made on paper/ cloth. But with time Potuas have started making Pattachitra on more contemporary mediums like, wooden or Aluminum plates, Metal Kettle, Wooden Serving trays to serve modern needs and demand. Also these new forms helped the Potuas to sustain and carry forward the art form from one generation to another.
