Artist Priyanshu Chaurasia
This is a really fascinating concept! We learned from her that she not only uses zero waste in her art, but she is also a very sustainable person in her daily life. She stated that it took her a long time to figure out how to go zero waste in her professional and personal life, and that it is tough but not impossible.
She stated that she was currently working on paper pulp casting because paper has so many possibilities, and that she was using waste and recycled paper in her work. She also stated that it was her life's resolution to not use new materials for her artwork, and that if she did use canvas, she would use old or recycled canvas
While speaking with her, she demonstrates that she has recently decreased her home's plastic usage by 90%. She is an inspiration to many people, she added, adding that after receiving her MFA from Jamia Milia Islamia, she practised printing at the Lalit Kala Akademi Garhi studio.But, over time, she realised that this approach is harmful not only to the environment, but also to the artist's health, so she abandoned it and is now working on paper pulp casting.
