My recent works showcase format paintings looking back at the traditional forms of Odishan Patta painting and craft. Works resembling multi-layered painted paper is actually the result of a wash painting technique. The painting originates from on which the watercolor is applied at a later stage through a meticulous and complex technique. This paintings requires numerous steps and takes from a few days up to two weeks to complete. The inspiration for the subject-matters of the paintings is the most time-consuming activity though, as it takes up to a couple of years for a core idea to become an actual concepts.

Working with common themes such as time, isolation, and transition, I am interested in the fragility of relationships and people’s awkwardness in trying to coexist and relate to one another. To that end I create miniature like detailing to serve as evolving still life’s from which I paint detailed narrative paintings.


Short Bio:

  Artistic sojourn from my native place, state in Odisha east India and my current place of practice in  New Delhi capital of India.  A shift from rural to urban, Odia to Hindi, the home and the world, the artist’s mundane realities changed enormously and to this he credits most of his conceptual development and modified techniques. Cityscapes and elements of urbanity are eminent works. Expresses with watercolors in a layered dialogue to accentuate existential depths within the city.
  Village reminiscing days when a child and would accompany my mother, a teacher at aanganwadi (play school), to create traditional patterns with golam (rice powder) on the walls our home. My father, a history teacher, to ancient monuments in Odisha, a place historically and culturally rich with temples, caves and Pattachitra (Indian traditional painting) art style. In oeuvre one finds allusions to the Patta technique, and in its mythological storytelling, fixed form, robust hues and floral motifs, renders a contemporary take on the style.
  I received a Master’s degree in Fine Arts in 2015 from College of Art, Delhi University, New Delhi, and a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts in 2012 from B. K. College of Art and Crafts, Bhubaneshwar, Odisha and . Most recently, I have received some  Scholarships, awards and group exhibition India and abroad. Research Grant Scholarship Lalit Kala Academy, Garhi Studio, New Delhi, 2015-2016. and  currently based in New Delhi.
