Raghurajpur's leading painter, Jagannath Mahapatra has been instrumental in establishing Raghurajpur as the village of exquisite artists. Amongst other craftsmen who are exquisite at their work are mask-makers Srikhetra Maharana and Kumudini Maharana. They specialize in non-theatrical masks (ones that don't have cut-outs for eyes or nose) inspired by Hindu gods and goddesses. There are other mask-makers in the village too. Usually the women prepare the masks with cow-dung or paper-pulp and the male artists paint the features on them.
