Sand sculptor Sudarsan prepares to set record

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 1 � Internationally famed sand artist Sudarsan Patnaik is planning to create a world record on the bank of the Brahmaputra and like all his previous ventures, this effort too would highlight a social issue.

Patnaik who has mesmerized art lovers across the world by sculpting incredible images on stretches of sand is keen to set a record on the bank of the Brahmaputra because he finds much similarity between Assam and his home State Orissa.

�This record would be a joint effort of students from Orissa and Assam,� he informed.

It needs to be mentioned here that Patnaik has the world champion title to his credit and has won many awards in the home country and abroad.

Talking to The Assam Tribune on Wednesday, Patnaik said that he was eager to impart his expertise to the students of Assam and would extend all cooperation to exchange programmes between artists of both the States.

�Sand art is like a sport. There are many challenges in executing an art work on sand. Though temporary, sand art appeals to the heart,� said Patnaik who is now getting ready for another international contest in the US.

A self taught artist, Patnaik has been imparting lessons to students of all age groups from every nook and corner of the world on the beach of Puri.

To promote sand art in the country, he started the Sudarsan Sand Art Institute more than a decade back. Now many of his students are carrying forward his mission � to popularize sand art.

According to Patnaik, sand art has immense scope for improvement in the country. �Now there are more than 10,000 artists practising sand art in the country,� he said adding that sand art is popular because it is close to nature with the beach serving as the canvas in the backdrop of the sea.

Experimenting on a wide range of issues, Patnaik is eager to use his medium to highlight every evil and angst of the society.

Patnaik was in the capital city at the invitation of the Association of Small and Medium Newspapers of India and Journalists� Union of Assam.
