Rajendra Shyam depicts the Gondi tales in great detail on his canvases. His favourite colour is brown in all its shades. He has adopted banda, the rope used to bind sheaves of grain, as his signature infill motiff to provide texture to his forms.
Rajendra has exhibited his work at Nottingham's New Art Exchange Gallery, London in 2009. Raju in collaboration with Venkant Shyam also painted a 70kg fiberglass elephant, Udata Hathi as a part of the Elephant Parade Mela. His depictions of tales of deity Bada Dev have been exhibitited at Horniman Art Gallery London in June 2011.
