Studio Patachitra is a labour of love for animation. The love for animation has brought three friends (Manoj Pradhan, Ankur Majumder and Andrew Hung) together to form Studio Patachitra. Patachitra is a vibrant and expressive folk art dating back to the 13th century East Bengal era. The beauty of it’s originality and essence is similar to the mindset of the three Co-founders. That is why they decided to keep the name of their agency as “Studio Patachitra”. We believe that every story can be transformed into an Animation since it’s a very powerful and intriguing medium to filmmaking. Animation has no limits and is only constrained by your imagination, so also we desire to take the medium of 2D Animation to the World. Our motto is to transform the lives of people and give them the power to imagine the unthinkable by creating a well scripted 2D Animated Shorts and Films.
Co-founder & CEO
Manoj Pradhan is the CEO of Studio Patachitra and is the key founder in the creation and development of Studio Patachitra. He presides over key management decisions and also loves to be a part of ad hoc responsibilities to be made for the growth of Studio Patachitra.
Prior to forming Studio Patachitra, Manoj was a freelancer and has won many online bids to create graphic art, comics, animation, games and Children Book for International Clients. His other interests lie in creating drones and is a certified IoT Architect.
Ankur Majumder (Titu)
Co-founder & 2D Animator / Director
Ankur is a self-taught animator who loved to paint since his childhood and was hugely influenced by 2D animated shows broadcasted on the television. Even though the financial situation of his family did not allow him to get admitted to an Animation School, it didn’t stop him from fulfilling his dream anyway.
His dream turned into his reality when he got the opportunity to work for an animation production. 10 years down the line, he now hopes to create 2D animated movies, because animation for him is not just a source or purpose for entertainment, but on a large scale, a film-making medium.

Amazing experience. Illustrations for my book were mind blowing. Everything got done on time and he was very good at keeping the communication flowing! Can’t wait to do more projects!
Easy to work with. Understood the directive immediately and delivered a quality product.
I have been writing children’s books for years, and I always chose to work with Manoj Pradhan and Ankur Majumder from Studio Patachitra for my illustrations. When it comes to children’s books, the illustrations are as important as the text. Their attention to detail, bright colours, and brilliant facial expressions really bring each and every page to life. I have loved working with these people and can always count on them for great results. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for amazing illustrations and stunning animation.
