This dynamic mixed-media surreal fantasyscape is an exciting example of the surreal mixed media works on paper that have made Contemporary Indian artist, Jagannath Panda one of the most recognized and relevant South Asian artists working today. In his highly imaginative and thought provoking manner, Jagannath explores dualities and contradictions such as the play between contemporary verses traditional, urban verses rural, and figurative verses abstraction to examine cultural, social, environmental, and political issues though his use of various materials, surreal narrative, exaggerated scale and dynamic compositions, all exemplified in this fantastic work by the artist.

Integrating many opposites into one cohesive composition, Jagannath deftly infuses his work with a unique personal aesthetic while creating an internal commentary on the subjects being addressed. As seen here, the artist is most famous for his mixed-media collages and assemblages to juxtapose symbolism with contradictory views of reality. Jagannath has received numerous awards over the course of his young career including the Centre Prize from C.I.I.C London (2002), the All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society Award (1996), and the National Academe Award from Central Lalit Kala Academe (1995), among numerous others. The artist lives and works in India.
