Cherial Folk Painting

Cherial folk painting is a beautiful work of art, expressing the narrative format by the means of rich color scheme. These paintings are based on the themes from the great epics. Employing traditional techniques, Cherial paintings are created on cloth that might run to meters in length. 'Kaki padagollu' is the main community that uses these paintings, as a visual aid to recite tales from 'Ramayana' and 'Mahabharata'. In the present day, artists also make Cherial paintings or scroll paintings in smaller sizes on cloth, cardboard, plywood and paper.
