Gorjala works with a delicate and intricate technique, portraying his spiritual take on the subjects of Indian mythology through both his imagery and his process. His use of a palette dominated by gold, red and green creates a very rich and natural feel in each of his paintings, and the moods that his subjects, mainly the gods, goddesses and mythical forms of Hanuman, Vishnu and Buddha, and are all painted with great sensitivity and attention to detail. All his works give a traditional and spiritual feel.
