Folk art in India apparently has a great potential in the international market because of its traditional aesthetic sensibility and authenticity. The rural folk paintings of India bear distinctive colourful designs which are treated with religious and mystical motifs. Folk art is however not restricted only to paintings but also stretches to other art forms such as pottery, home decorations, ornaments, cloths-making and so on. In fact the potteries of some of the regions of India are quite popular among foreign tourists because of their ethnic and traditional beauty. Guys can you name some of the folk arts of India?

Patachitra is a very famous folk art of India. This special painting on cloth is a special art form of Odisha. Patachitra can be dated back to the 5th century BC. It is an art form developed lovingly by the locals of Raghurajpur, Puri, Sonepur, etc. The appearance of the paintings became more widespread with the construction of the great temples of Puri, Konark and Bhubaneswar. A plethora of paintings appeared in temples and maths around the 18th century.
