Born on February 13, 1989, Samir Mohanty's artistic journey is a testament to the fusion of reality and imagination, deeply rooted in his upbringing in a village where landscapes held profound significance. A graduate of the prestigious S.N. School of Arts and Communication, Hyderabad Central University, with a Master's degree in Painting, and earlier, a Bachelor's from B.K. College of Art and Crafts, Utkal University of Culture, Mohanty's oeuvre reflects a lifelong commitment to exploring the interplay between tradition and innovation.

Mohanty's work is a vibrant tapestry of colors, primarily expressed through the fluid medium of watercolor. His fascination with watercolor stems from its inherent ability to capture the essence of nature swiftly and with a lifelike quality. Through his paintings, Mohanty channels the joy and serenity found in nature, mirroring the landscapes of his childhood and invoking a sense of nostalgia.

Beyond mere aesthetic expression, Mohanty's art serves a deeper purpose – that of preserving cultural heritage and advocating for traditional values.
