About the Author

Patua artist Rohima Chitrakar began learning this art from her parents-in-law Moyna Chitrakar and Joydeb Chitrakar, established Patua artists themselves. Among Rohima's favourite themes are the adivasis and their daily life in the village, featuring cooking, cleaning, hunting, fishing and playing. Sometimes her paintings also focus on other contemporary aspects such as the government's civic initiatives. Rohima's style has gained a strong individuality over the years, and the fish is a recurring motif in her art. Along with her family, she has participated in government programmes and also exhibited her work at fairs in and around Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.
