Bringing laurels to Indore, 22-year-old Sameer Dubey entered the Golden Book of World Records by making a horse sculpture using 2,069 paperclips.
“I had applied for the Golden Book of Records considering the very unique and innovative nature of the art. My art comprises of me making use of the clips to create my signature art figure, that is a horse,” Dubey said.
Regarding how he stumbled on to the unique idea of using paperclips, he said, “I recently set up my own designer studio, which I named Paperclips (because of) the simple yet multipurpose nature of paperclips. It was then that I came up with the idea of creating my own masterpiece.”
Creating the entire art work on a wooden board, Dubey’s earlier works too have earned him a reputation. One of his works constructed using metal pieces from a bike got him featured at a famous art gallery in Spain.
The 22-year-old has already built a name for himself by publicising his work on social media. He receives international orders for his exclusive art work.
“After I got featured in Spain, I received a lot of orders from Dubai and USA. These were people who could understand the exclusivity of my art," he said.
Another of Dubey’s works of art is scheduled to be displayed under the aegis of an international body of artists, which will gain him the unique privilege of being the only Indian to be featured there.
