Artist honours CM by creating his picture with candle soot
Payyannur: Artist Unni Kanayi is using the lockdown period for honouring the state's coronavirus resistance activities through his artwork.
He has created a figure of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan using candle soot in order to honour him for leading the coronavirus prevention activities.
Unni chose a rare method to draw the picture. The white ceiling of his house is used as canvas. Candle flame is held against the ceiling to mark it with the soot.
He used five ordinary candles to make the picture that is 4 feet long and 5 feet wide. It took one whole day to complete the drawing.
"When people are asked to stay indoors during the lockdown period, it is hard to remain idle. I was interested in doing something creative and it resulted in this candle soot picture," said Unni Kanayi.
