The cultured paintings and sculpture of Jagganath Panda

Jagannath Panda was born into a family of priests in Orissa, India and has moved between several cities like his small and rural homeland and several large cities like London and the rapidly-growing city of New Delhi where he currently works and resides. He has completed several degrees in sculpture as well as a Master’s in both fine arts and fine sculpture at different institutions. The artist’s two-dimensional works usually consist of a somewhat surreal format in which his detailed subjects emerge from dreamy planes or interact with one another in what appear to be boggling relations. Panda stresses on the reality of the materials that he uses in his work by using mediums such as silver foil, thread, and tracing sheets to accentuate his drawings and paintings. His three dimensional works are typically more representational. Jagannath Panda’s work is simple in that it communicates his own surroundings. He brings together the clashing cultures of modern-day development and society with traditional Indian symbols and subjects. A great example of this is found in his sculpture of two snakes constructed from pipe eating each other as the world teeters at the edge of one of their bodies. See his work below and interpret it yourself!
