Well known Young Odia artist Deepak Biswal has come up with a new experiment ‘Staple Art’ after being widely appreciated for his ‘Smoke Art’.
The silver city denizen staples hundreds of pins on a wood polymer composite (WPC) board to give his imagination an artistic form. He applies the technique of stapling the staples on a WPC board to express his thoughts through painting using no colour.
Asked about this unique medium of painting, the artist said all of a sudden a thought came to his mind to use staples in painting and without a second thought he tried his hand.
“I am painting since last 13 years and every time I think of doing something new. The staple art is something that came to mind with an attempt to do something unique,” Biswal said.
“I have been trying my hand on different forms of paintings since years. First I started doing art with different coloured ball pens which was a big challenge for me but it garnered huge response and I have never looked back since then. It gave me immense strength to come up with new ideas of art forms. It ushered me a way for painting,” he said.
Deepak, who never thinks of settling up with a single form of art said, “I took up Smoke Art, as a challenge after the ball-pen art and later switched to the staple art”.
Biswal, a businessman by profession, is also trying his hand in bubble wrap painting, Bindi art, water colour art and colour pencil art.
“I use WPC board, a big stapler and a small stapler for this form of painting. It takes 2,000 to 10,000 pins to shape an art. I have completed three staple arts yet and eyes on doing more in coming days giving new touch to the art”, said the painter.
