Sunrise at Gajipur Garbage Hills⠀
Plastic and wooden board
Plasticvalla is one of those few artists who have turned their art practice into a tool to fight against some of the real issues of our time. He aestheticises trash such as plastic from his genuine effort not to let the unrecyclable plastic bags return to nature. ‘Sunrise at Gajipur Garbage Hills’ recreates an image of the Gajipur Hill, a manmade stretch of landscape filled with garbage and trash. Several plastic covers are used in this work to match the colour palette of an early morning sky.
A post-graduate from College of Art, New Delhi, Manveer aka Plasticvalla has been invited to several art residency programmes in India and abroad, including International Art Residency at Art Hub on Environmental Awareness in Abu Dhabi (2019), Utsha Residency Programme (2019) and Art Residency in Ladakh organised by UNDP (2019). He was awarded the Prafulla Dahanukar award in 2017, 2018 and 2019. He made an installation at the Asian Heritage Foundation in 2019. His work, created as part of the residency programme in Abu Dhabi, will travel to Manarat Gallery and Louvre Abu Dhabi.
His works have been displayed in a number of group shows since his early college days. Plasticvalla is presently working as an Assistant Professor at his alma mater.
