How did we come up with this idea and why this name?
My brother and me always collect various art and crafts for our home and also design and create for better make over.
I have a strong inclination towards art and crafts and always wanted to get associated with art and craft people. When i was interacting with some artists i came to know that there are so many difficulties to get a market place as well as to promote them. The creation is so good but they don’t get the value for their creation. So i thought of to create a market in order to promote and develop art and craft.
We had accumulated a huge collection of art and crafts in our home. Its looked like a go down of art and creations. So we thought why don’t we name it Art godaam (‘Godaam’ it’s a Hindi word means where we stock many products.) We were trying some other name but we find it easy because it’s simple, people know the word and it’s easy to remember.
Art godaam got founded in 1st of January 2013.
What problem “Art Godaam" solve?
- Created a marketplace for artist and craft people
- We help the craft people to find their identity.
- Recycled products
- Promotion of traditional art form.

Shisir Kumar Jena born on 14th of August 1982 in an Artist Family at village Baulakhaladi under Kaptipada Block of Mayurbhanj district of Odisha. His father Sri Kushanath Jena is also a well-known Artist.
From the childhood days Sri Shisir Kumar Jena had an inclination towards art & craft, song and literature, which led him to devote his heart and soul towards research in different forms of Art.
Shisir received training in Pattachitra (traditional paintings of Orissa) from Guru Kalamani Rabindranath Sahoo a well know Pattachitra artist of ODISHA and mastered the skills of that particular form of Art which took him long time. For his excellence in Pattachitra, he received CSAC STATE AWARD From Lalit Kala Academy, Bhubaneswar Odisha in the year 2000.
Though pursuing higher education and earning himself a degree in MBA didn’t keep him away from his interest in Art.
Apart from his Job from Corporate sector he decided to start an entrepreneurship.
Brother-Sameer Kumar Jena (Co-Founder) is an architect, designer working in an MNC.
Thus we two brothers worked together in the art field. We started the story of ART GODAAM.
Currently a team of six people are associated with us. Among which four are trained Artist and other two are for online marketing coordinator.
We have been working with different artisans from different regions of India. We have brought them a platform to work with.
