Art work Description:
PANCHAL HARILAL NCR TRIBUNE STORIES: Friday, September 6, 2002, Chandigarh, India ART SCAPE: He sees beauty in scrap and makes it come alive, by Garima Pant His paintings are called “Spirit of Scrap” and he loves scrap. Any type of waste material, either from industrial or domestic activity, is utilised by him, seeking to reach a balance with nature through the consumption of such wastes. This scrap is fixed on a board and turned into a painting with a thoughtful combination of colour and geometry. Meet Panchal Harilal, who works with the medium of scrap and had his work on display at the Lalit Kala Academy. He began his career about 40 years ago as a signboard artist and used only his spare time to dip into paints and colours. It was the beginning of an illustrious career and that is still evolving. As an additional and extended activity to his scrap paintings, he also creates sculptures out of industrial waste materials to harmonise industry with environment. He has travelled the length and breadth of the country and has been widely acclaimed and appreciated for his splendid efforts. His work is a mix of both decorative pieces and deep meditative tone. One of his very popular subjects is Ganesha, a very well-known deity of Gujarat and Maharastra. His efforts can be regarded as a very noble one as he is trying to do something unique, which is not only aesthetically appealing but also has a stately cause attached to it, and that is also spreading awareness about our environment. He is contributing to the efforts of beautification of our environment and deserves appreciation from one and all.
