Artist of the moment….Jagganath Panda….

The artist was born in New Delhi, India in the year 1970.

Below is a brief interview with the artist taken in 2009. Takes place at Gallery Alexia Goethe Gallery.

Here Panda talks about his work of art titled THE CULT OF SURVIVAL II, takes place in 2011.

For his artistic education the artist earned a bachelors degree from the B.K. College of Arts and Crafts. Panda went on to earn a masters degree from the same institution. The artist also earned another masters degree from the Royal College of Art.

Panda has a unique style showing his wonderful drawing skills alongside a high level of creativity in design. In some works Panda uses such items as foil, thread, various papers. The artist uses a very limited palette.

Price range information:  Panda has worked in acrylics which range from $1,000 to $120,000. Oils which range from $1,200 to $133,000.  The artist has done works in watercolor but not enough to make a price schedule, just occasional works appear on the market.

Panda is a Surrealist painter that tries to add his thoughts on the world to his art, one recurring theme is over population of large city areas. Panda is living thru a period of time in India that is very much like the Industrial Revolution of the United States. With large masses of humanity fleeing the countryside and rural areas of the country for the opportunity and riches of the big cities.

Panda is a great Surrealist painter that reminds me of the wonderful Hungarian artist C. Pol Molnar. Both artists do a great job of creating a mythical atmosphere to life. I love looking at the horizons lines of both artist’s and the amount of depth both are able to achieve. Below is a great example of C. Pal Molnar’s style.


Panda currently lives and works out of New Delhi, India.

Winner of the All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society Award.

Panda is a wonderful painter that exemplifies what a modern Surrealist artist can be. I enjoy trying to decipher the many messages that exist in his paintings. From urbanization themes to the select use of funky fabrics and graphic design, his artwork has a contemporary feel. Even on smaller works the artist does a great job at creating mood and atmosphere. The viewer has the feeling of looking at a space that is very real, and seems larger than it appears.  I also enjoy the edges of artists work, they are like the artist very unique!
