Growing up in a village in Orissa, Pruthiraj Sahoo spent his childhood collecting and hoarding up piles of things he found around him. This intrinsic interest in found objects led him to engage in a dialogue with them as part of his artistic practice. His process is marked by the little revelations that stem from the conversations he has with the objects. However, unlike Marcel Duchamp's readymades, he breathes life into his art by amalgamating different objects to create a new form. He uses cement as his medium which is symptomatic of urbanity.
Prithviraj has a keenness towards introspection and experimentation with new textures and materials. He also likes to travel to places that challenge his perspectives.
