Bhopal, Mar 28 (ANI): Dried leaves, which are otherwise considered waste, are being transformed into eye-catching paintings by an artiste in Bhopal.
An engineer by profession, 70-year-old Gopal Krishna Beri, has created numerous paintings and works of art by using different kinds of tree leaves.
Inspired to utilize the waste material into something worthwhile, this septuagenarian used the dried leaves and created some stunning paintings from it.
"Usually people burn this waste and only ashes are left behind. So I wanted to show how this waste could be used to make something useful. Now, my work has become so popular that people come to see my paintings," Beri said.
He collects the leaves with unusual hues and then cuts them into interesting shapes and sizes to create his art.
Beri's unique art has also got him a mention in the Limca Book of Records. By Ram Chand Sahu (ANI)
