Sai Kiran Dhanalakot

I belong to a family which happens to be the last practitioner for Cheriyal Scroll Art. To give you an idea of our legacy, a 160-year-old Cheriyal scroll painted by my great-great-grandfather is also exhibited in a museum in Paris. I hold a degree in fine arts. I wonder if Cheriyal scroll artists know more about the stories they are painting, as the storytellers of these paintings are independent and add their own color to the stories. My favorite story is Gaurapuranama, which is about Toddy Tappers (Wine tappers). I strongly believe that art must evolve with time.
