Mayank Kumar Shyam, the son of Jangarh Singh Shyam, has moved away considerably from the first-generation iconography and style of Gond art and focuses on geometrical patterns. He participated in his first group exhibition called Primal Force (2006) at Kolkata’s CIMA Gallery at the age of 19. His works were also included in the Indian Contemporary Art Auction at Sotheby’s, New York, organized for the benefit of Kolkata Museum of Modern Art. In 2006, Mayank was conferred the state award by the Hasta Shilpa Evam Hathkargha Vikas Nigam in Bhopal.
Mayankh was featured in the book ‘Freedom’ sixty years after Indian Independence (published by Art and Heritage Foundation, 2007).
