Here's how this artist turns leaves into art to bring attention to the environment
Subham has carved images of several famous personalities onto leaves with just the help of a pen and a blade
Art inspired by nature is always beautiful and fascinating. The experience becomes more enchanting when an artist carves out a master piece from nature. Subham Saha, an ITI pass out and a budding artist turns simple leaves into art with the help of a blade and a pen. "Since childhood, Subham was never interested in playing games. He always used to sit and colour. Art is his only passion. We supported him in every manner we could. For us, what is more important is that he enjoys his work," Subham's mother, Suchitra Saha said.
Subham has carved images of several famous personalities onto leaves, including former President of India, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan and Bharat Ratna awardee Lata Mangeshkar. If one looks closely, with the growing concerns over climate change and pollution across the globe, ecological art has become a contemporary form of art.
In India, there are several artists who have come out with their art pieces to spread the message of conserving the environment among the masses. Yesterday, sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik also made a few feet tall sculpture on the theme of water conservation at Odisha's Puri beach. The artist depicted an overfilled bucket with water flowing into the drainage. He also inscribed the slogan 'Don't Waste Water' at the bottom of the sand sculpture.
