Paitkar paintings are made by tribals of Jharkhand.

Paitkar painting is a folk painting found in East India in the form of scrolls. The Paitkar painting made in the bordering areas of Jharkhand, West Bengal and Orissa and considered as the old age tribal painting of India. The painting is prepared by the painters known as 'Chitrakar'.

Paitkar painting may be considered as the variant of Pata painting. Pata painting or Pata chitra is the term used for long scroll painting. This scroll painting has a vertical format. Patapainting is one of the earliest folk paintings of India.

The communities who paint Pata chitras are known as Patua in West Bengal. And in the area of Jharkhand they are also known locally as Patidar, Patekar or Paitkar . Paitkar has its original name from pātekar. The style of narrative scroll of Paitkar painting is derived from Pandulipi (generally scroll in nature) which is earlier used by kings to send a message to other kings.
