Upcycling Metal waste
Deval Verma is an artist, who has been breaking all the stereotypes for eight years and continues to innovate with the objective of ‘taking trash, making treasure’. He transforms metal scrap into pieces of art that are inexplicably winsome. The 28-year-old makes exquisite artworks upcycled from scrap metal. A mechanical engineer and a product design post-graduate from MIT Pune fuse the ideology of design and art to create highly customized products/artefacts. Whenever Deval found time from school schedules and the company of friends, he made toy-sized models inspired by sci-fi movies like Transformers. The first piece that got a loud cheer from friends and family was a tiny model of a motorcycle he had made using buttons, pen caps, screw and some nails. In college, Deval pursued Mechanical Engineering and in the four-year course, he went on to make several models from scrap. In his final year, he worked on the official logo of Harley Davidson and the scrap installation that was displayed in the company’s showroom. In eight years of his professional conduct, he owns a brand “DEVAL’S” under which he endows to the needs of commissioned artworks, design projects, furnishing, retails, and corporate gifting.
