OB Bureau

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik released a special Ila Panda Centre for Arts (IPCA) art book edition titled ‘Bridging Centuries: An Artist’s Mirror On Kharavela And The Cave Carvings Of Udayagiri Hill’ on Thursday.

The art volume, which sheds light on Odisha’s unique art heritage and cultural legacy, was launched in the presence of veteran artist Shyamsunder Pattanayak, IPCA Founder Trustee Paramita Panda and IPCA Working Committee Chairperson Panchami Manoo Ukil.

IPCA brought out this edition for the public as the work on paintings was inspired and guided by Biju Patnaik, who had asked the artist to recreate the cave carvings of Udayagiri as paintings in the early 1960s.

It was apt that as culmination of his vision, the book was released by his son and current CM Naveen Patnaik.

‘Bridging Centuries’ records the journey and creative contribution of a master artist and also tells the story of a piece of Odisha’s art history, of an ancient time.
