Jagannath Panda
Indian, b. 1970

In his detailed mixed-media paintings, drawings, and sculptures, Jagannath Panda mixes mythology with reality, and motifs from traditional Indian art with images from Western and Indian contemporary culture, to explore the effects of globalization and rapid development on his country. The natural and the manmade collide and coalesce both seamlessly and uncomfortably in his works. Panda illustrates the paradoxes inherent in India’s burgeoning development and prosperity and the profound destruction—of the environment, human beings, and traditional culture—caused by modernization. In his striking sculpture, The Cult of Survival II (2011), for example, Panda uses industrial plastic pipes to construct two giant, intertwined snakes in the act of devouring each other—a poignant commentary on the continual cycle of destruction, construction, and regeneration at play in modern-day India.
