About the Journal

The Chitrolekha Journal on Art and Design (E-ISSN 2456-978X) is a scholarly platform for discussions on the evolution and intercategorial development of art and design. The journal explores arts both as a mode of signaling as well as being in an ontological sense. The mystery of the first arts of our ancestors intrigues us today, from a scientific as much as an aesthetic perspective. Similarly the future of arts leads us to think of things quite unknown to us. The scope of the journal therefore, is open-ended so as to be able to incorporate and address emerging areas in human arts and sciences.
