Paintings of Narmada Prasad Tekam

















Profile of Narmada Prasad Tekam

Narmada Prasad Tekam

Location: Bhopal


As a child, when Narmada took the cattle out to graze by the banks of the River Singni, he taught himself to draw by making an imprint of himself in the sand and then tracing the outline with a stick. Later, he started painting on the walls of his house with black and yellow clay. His themes were varied – from figures of humans, animals and birds to gods, like Hanuman. For colour, he used pigments extracted from leaves and flowers. His motifs have changed over the years, and now he draws mainly tigers, deer, birds and porcupine. Narmada Prasad Tekam came to Bhopal in 1983, a few months after Jangarh Singh Shyam. His talent was discovered by a student of the contemporary artist, J


Swaminathan in Patangarh. Narmada Prasad has travelled extensively showcasing his paintings and currently works as an artist in the Adivasi Lok Kala Parishad. In 2006, Narmada Prasad Tekam, was awarded the Shikhar Sanman by the Government of Madhya Pradesh. Gallerie splash exhibited & promoted Narmada’s works through various group shows in India & abroad.
