Indian artist creates Mushroom Cloud sculpture from used utensils
Eco Factor: Artwork created from recycled kitchen utensils.
Indian artist Subodh Gupta, who earlier created a skull sculpture from old kitchen utensils, is back again with another creation made using the same raw materials. The artist has created an apocalyptic sculpture that resembles the immediate aftermath of an atomic explosion with old pots and pans.
Gupta, who has often been called the “Damien Hirst of Delhi”, sees everyday objects as ready-made art. Raised in a poor and violent Indian province of Bihar, the designer’s is passionate about using unlikely objects in his paintings and sculptures. Created in Singapore for $100,000, the installation is so large that it took five people to assemble it.
