Debabrata proves that one man’s trash could become another man’s masterpiece. Born and raised in a Bahiri, a village in the Birbhum district of West Bengal, Debabrata grew up watching his family create wood carvings. With a penchant for design and art, he took up an interior design course at Visva Bharati in Shantiniketan. During a five-day workshop on ‘Exposure to Material’, Debabrata was inspired to upcycle waste and scrap materials into art. He has been doing this for close to four years and even has his own employee, a young local boy. Most of his finished pieces are decorative items made out of waste wood, paper or metal. His work has an abstract and ethereal quality that makes it unique.
