In this paper I have highlighted those art works which have hybrid/composite imagery. These images are not only appealing visually but also have strong connections with Indian Mythology. In Indian Myths these are considered as heavenly being and are mentioned in mythological stories in many forms such as aerial or atmospheric mythical animals, terrestrial mythical animal, and aquatic mythical animals etc. I have provided analysis of these types of images which are a part of Indian contemporary paintings with a new interpretation of meaning. I have included variety of these images and distributed them according to their physical appearance. For this paper I have chosen those contemporary Indian artists who have maintained a relation with their philosophy, mythology as well as with present scenario. They have reinvented the meaning of Indian mythology by giving a new appearance of its idioms and metaphors. In contemporary art I have surveyed hybrids or composite images personified into a new expression.
