Cheriyal Scroll Paintings

Cheriyal scrolls were once sociologically and culturally significant. Conventionally used as a tool for educating the unschooled villagers, these painted scrolls were also used by the village bard as a visual aid to go with his stories and folk songs. Since the scrolls required artistes to paint meticulous lines, the royal state machinery termed the artistes as ‘nakshas’ (naksha means fine line), and thus the art form came to known as the Nakashi paintings.

The traditional art form became an inseparable part of the profession of the story-telling, balladeer community known as Kaki Padagollu. They displayed the scrolls and accompanied by music and dance went from village to village narrating and singing their ballads based on their rich folklore which was rooted in the Puranas and Indian Epics, enlivening many after a hard day's work at their village.

    About the Artist

    I'm D Sai Kiran Varma from a small village of Cheriyal in Telangana and is one of the few artists in the country who specializes in Cheriyal art, which I have learned from my parents – state award winners, D Nageshwar and D Padma.
    I have studied Fine Art's at Sri Venkateswara College of Fine Arts, Hyderabad, specializing in painting with the aim of preserving Cheriyal art and is working now with Kakipadagallolu storytellers, who narrate tales from the Mahabharata to the community of fruit pickers. 
    I would constantly aim to make Cheriyal art more contemporary and relevant by using its motifs to make utility items such as mobile covers, key chains, tissue boxes, paperweights, and the popular masks which are made from coconut shells. All these items are made from the same materials, with the same techniques and I ensure that I'm not making it fully contemporary as then this art will get lost.
