These Lord Jagannath paintings are works of many contemporary and traditional painters, staying and practicing in Odisha and other parts of the country. In 2015, these artists were invited by Odisha Tourism department to Puri for a three days Artists’ Camp – Nila Kandara.
All artists have drawn beautiful paintings of Lord Jagannath and they have taken only vegetarian food for three days. Then these awesome paintings have been exhibited at Puri Panthasala for 3 days.
