Churning of the Ocean or samudra manthan is one of the oldest and most important events according to Hindu mythology. It is believed that the Gods (Deva) and demons (Asura) churn the ocean of milk together to extract the nectar of immortality. But in the process of this churning, various other things, such as lethal poison, Goddess of fortune, the moon, and some astounding plants and animals like Kamdhedu, Airavat, Parijat, etc. were also churned out. Pramesh Paul’s painting ‘Churning of the Ocean’ is an illustration of this mythological event. The onlooker can see the main characters of this event, beautifully painted on the wall of a holy city. We can see the Gods and demons holding each end of Vasuki, the king of serpents, as the churning rope, Mount Mandara as the churning rod, churning the Goddess of fortune out of the ocean. Using the bold and beautiful hues of ochers, Paul has painted the wall of the holy city and then used a colourful palette full of red, blue, green and white to highlight the events.

Paramesh Paul art is honesty, divinity, religion, place, faith, and architecture – all mixed on his canvas. Born and brought up in West Bengal in the family of traditional potters, he was trained, in the art of making images of the divine in clay. As a child, he explored his love for art in these artistic environs. Even though he was formally studying Commerce, he decided to follow his heart and dedicated a decade in the ISKON temples to pursue his passion.

After that, Paramesh came to the world as an outstanding artist who was able to amalgamate elements of what he innately knew what the world was showing him. He was drawn to ancient Indian cities and stories from Indian mythology which he craftily put in his paintings. In his Benaras series, he uses the ghats as the backdrop on which a ‘poster’ or a snippet from Indian mythology is painted – be it ‘Sagar Manthan’ (‘The Churning of the Sea’) or a simple portrayal of Shiva-Shakti. He manages to seamlessly talk to the viewer about the place and the story.

Paramesh’s attention to details – be it of architecture to human portraits is uncanny. It is no wonder that he has managed to create a place for himself and his work in national and international art circles. A celebrated artist, his work is worth your art collection- and something that you would be proud to pass on to the coming generation.
