Jagannath Panda | Artist-Mentor

1 (3)

Artist-mentor Jagannath Panda through his paintings and mixed media works brings in the quintessential dilemmas of an India that grapples with progress, modernization and globalization. He was born in 1970 in the state of Orissa. He completed his BFA in sculpture at BK College of Arts and Crafts. His MFA was in sculpture from The Royal College of Art in London.

As a child, Panda remembers drawing all the time. He had a lot of interest in mythology in his growing years, and he remembers his father narrating stories about them.

Through his personal experiences of being a migrant in a metropolis and the rapid shifts of development in New Delhi where he lives, Panda works with the visuality of daily life.
