Bhubaneswar, July 28 (LocalWire): Renowned sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik has made India proud by winning the ‘People’s Choice Prize’ at Boston Revere Beach International Sand Art Championship Festival 2019 in the USA.
Pattnaik was the lone artist to represent India at the international sand art festival this year.
His sand sculpture on plastic pollution awareness which was captioned as ‘Stop Plastic Pollution-Save Our Ocean’ bagged him the prize.
Soon after being awarded, Pattnaik shared the news on his Twitter handle along with pictures of his sculpture and the medal.
The audience voted him for his beautiful concept and the sculpture where he sculpted an ocean in which a turtle and a fish are stuck within a plastic bag.
He also sculpted plastic trash like slippers, bottles and glass inside the fish’s body, signifying how plastic is polluting the ocean and adversely impacting sea animals and eventually human beings.
