Laxman Maharana

(1938- 2003) a pattachitra artist, was the son of Gopal Maharana from Raghurajpur in Puri. He learnt art as a child, painting on pieces of discarded cloth, and playing with terracotta to mould the matter into icons. A master in depicting the intricacies of folk forms his work is marked for its characterization, with a focus on Lord Jagannath, the presiding deity of Orissa, and a dexterous play of lines and colours. Devoid of much landscapes, or perspectives the narratives are featured around godly idols and Krishna Leela encased in decorative borders.
