Born in Bhubaneshwar, Orissa, Panda completed his BFA in Sculpture at B.K College of Arts and crafts, Bhubaneshwar (1986-91) and his MFA Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts M.S University Baroda (1994). He was a visiting researcher at Fukuoka University of Education, Fukuoka, Japan and completed an MFA in Sculpture from Royal College of Arts, London. Jagannath Panda's motifs often allude to the underlying forces that drive the social mechanism.He has exhibited his work at many international venues, including Hockney Gallery, RCA London, Nature Morte, Za moca Foundation Gallery, Tokyo, Saffronart and the Guild Mumbai STPI Singapore, and solo shows at Nature Morte, New Delhi. He has won the Lalit Kala Academi Award in 1990 and All Inda Fine Arts and Crafts Society Award, Delhi in 1996. The artist lives and works in Delhi

The visual imagery of Jaganath Pande is decepitively simple, it comprises of linear drawing & a rendered form or two, which seem to float on the surface. His drawings are very realistic, yet he does not offer the veiwer a reference to its existance, or rather he doesnot recreate a sense of panorama in his paintings. At times he also employs the use of external material, such as silver foil, thread, tracing sheets, to stress upon the reality of the material. The role of color is limited though used effectively to highlight the form, it also sets off the drawings to their best advantage.

Jaganath's style of paintings suits well to his concerns, which are with his immediate surrounding, Orissa, the state he hails from. He is sensitive to the issues raised by urbanisation, politics. The calamity of floods which Orissa faced in the year 1999, resulted in a painting which immortalised the date "29th October", superimposed on a photocopy, of On kawara's exhibition room, wrapped in a transparent airmail. That's his style, he does not romantise the issues, he states it as objectively as possible. This objectivity can be traced back to On Kawara, whose concern was documentation (to put it briefly) by the means of "dates" and who inspires him a great deal. Figurative, but not narrative, seemingly direct yet laden with symbolism, such contradictory descriptives define the paintings of Jaganath Panda.
