Art & Sending

HYDERABAD:Nothing is a waste object for the creative mind, say the young students of Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University (JNAFU). Proving their words true, the students have used the objects like old card boards, newspapers and plastic bottles and turned them into beautiful art works.

The works of first-year students of Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) were put on display in front of the university building at Masab Tank on Monday. Their work not only shows their art skills but also carries an important message.

An art piece made with old clothes and old card boards shows a dead man lying on a bed of cigarettes. “The message is clear: those  addicted to smoking are literally lying on the death bed,” said Sai Kiran, a student.

Another highlight was a huge dust bin made with used papers. It carries a message: “Girl children are an asset to the nation. Don’t throw them into dust bins.” This was made to condemn the female foeticide in India, said Shweta, a first-year fine arts student. 

The entire art work was done by students as part of their curriculum. The fine arts courses require the students to make some art works for submission to the faculty as a project work in every semester. Their performance in academics will be evaluated based on the projects. When teachers at JNAFU asked the students to make something out of the waste material, the students chose to send a message through their work.
