Jagannath Panda’s work addresses the twin processes of rapid urbanization and ecological degradation, which destroy eco-sensitive traditions, render species extinct, and rupture the continuum between humankind and the natural world.
Jagannath Panda’s works are an amalgamation of art traditions and mediums, coming together to create a style which is distinctly his own. A native of Orissa, his art tells the tale of his immediate surroundings, tales of urbanization and the politics of land.
Panda’s solo shows include ‘Nothing is Solid’ at Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai, in 2007; Berkeley Square Gallery and Saffronart Online, London, in 2006; Nature Morte, New Delhi, in 2005; and Zamoca Foundation Gallery, Tokyo, 1998. His work has been included in many group shows like those at the Hockney Gallery, London, 2002; KHOJ International Exhibition at British Council, New Delhi, 2000; and Saffronart and the Guild Gallery, Mumbai, 2004.
The artist lives and works in New Delhi.
