For Jaspreet Singh Virdi, this art has a piece of his imagination that he creates and secures in these bottles forever
Art is a form of communication. Canadian professor/philosopher and public intellectual Marshall McLuhan says that great art speaks a language which every intelligent person can understand. Every artist wants to create the best and a different art form. Similarly, Jaspreet Singh Virdi, who basically hails from Punjab, excels in a unique art form called ‘3D Bottle Art’. “And people generally confuse my art with glass art, but, it is not,” clarifies Jaspreet, “For me, this art has a piece of my imagination that I create and secure in these bottles forever.” Spelling his art, the bottle art, Jaspreet shares that he makes different instrument inside a glass bottle without cutting it. “Not only Punjabi instrument, but I also make flower pot, hut in the bottles. It is something new and fascinating for people who come to see my art pieces.” Not just bottle art, Jaspreet also involves himself in the other art forms like wall painting, sketching, clay modelling among others. But, he says that 3D bottle art is his most favourite for sure.
Meanwhile, Jaspreet, who studied only till eighth grade, wants to promote Indian art forms in different corners of the world. When someone asks him, how you create all this, he says that he wants to do something different in life. “It took me 2 years to create this art form, wasn’t easy, but this was all that I was focusing on. I love to do this more and more, again and again,” avers Jaspreet. To create his art pieces, Jaspreet uses waste material like waste glass bottle, wooden materials, coloured papers and clay. He shares that it takes about 20 to 30 days to complete one artwork. Of course, he is proud of the work that he is doing, yet he feels, “When a foreign artist creates something unique and different, there is a lot of hype about it… I think Indians artists, no matter of what level, should be given the same respect and appreciation. “Government should give us a platform to grow and do more. It cannot be a one-person task, it should be,” says Jaspreet as he signs off.
