Bikash Mahapatra is an ikat weaver from Maniabandha, a small village in Odisha. Bikash comes from a family of percussionists and they are well known in the village for both weaving and the legacy of being percussion artists for generations. He took his lessons in percussion from his maternal grandfather. While his father was a percussionist and a weaver, his mother brought him up by practising badha (tying) work. Bikash has been learning to tie bandha ever since he was 12 years old and having mastered the art he also weaves beautiful single weft ikat sarees. In many ways his inherent skills of being a percussionist also seep through in his craft and are an integral part of his creative thought process.
