With parents who were artists and having been born into a family of award winning artists, it is not hard to see that Prakash Kumar Meher’s blood thrums with a love for painting. The Odisha based youth was attracted to art from a young age and has featured in many exhibitions across the world, realizing his dream. He has been felicitated for his Tree of Life evoked as a tussar silk patta painting, winning the Master Craftsman National Award in 2001, which was awarded to him by the President of India.
