Watch video: The Bangalore techie who can turn discarded pen refills into beautiful iconic structures
We may ever think of making fantastic structures out of discarded pen refills, but here a software professional made us surprised by his talent. Sreenivasulu M R a software engineer from Bangalore, India had a hobby of collecting used pen refills from friends since childhood. As part of 'Say No to Plastic' program, which he organizes for awareness of global warming in schools and colleges, he setup used pen refill collection boxes.

The program turned out to be the source for raw materials to make miniature structures. He started creating miniature structures out of pen refills. In 2007, the miniature structure creation of 'Eiffel Tower' from used pen refills was initiated. It took 8 months to make Eiffel Tower from 200 pen refills backed by his preparation, passion and persistence. The splurge of the structures continued. Charminar, Big-Ben Clock, Taj Mahal, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Gateway of India, Seattle Space Needle, Sydney Harbor Bridge all fell out from used pen refills.

Interestingly, his works has set a national record and has been awarded 'India Book of Records' in the year 2012 for making a miniature of Taj Mahal from 700 used pen refills. He was one among the final exhibitors in 'Innovation Festival 2015' happened at Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum, Bangalore, India. He was one of the final exhibitor at 'Pride of India', an expo organized as a part of the 103rd edition of Indian Science Congress 2016, Mysore, India. His works received great appreciation from delegates and scientists. An artistic interview has been published in 'Amsterdam Art Magazine' in the year 2015.

His artistic skills in painting, classical dance, making sculptures out of sand and chalks show his versatility of his talent. His goal is to be in a position that he has covered making all the famous landmarks all over the world. We wish him all the best!
