About Apindra Swain
I, Apindra Swain began my journey as a craftsman at a tender age of 10, assisting my father. I was involved in my family run business of palm-leaf engraving. After my primary education, I decided to leave it and joined my father full time. Me and my family of 7 to 8 members used to work together. Gradually we expanded our work. I underwent a formal training by GOI in Bhubaneshwar in this craft. In 1990, I was identified by Dastkar and invited for a one month workshop at NIFT, Delhi. I was later invited by Dastkar and Dastkari Haat Samiti for their exhibition which brought to me, a lot of popularity as an artist.
