Cotton may be the fabric of our lives... but an indian artist is turning it into art.
Fifty-three year old Muni Rathnam taught himself how to paint and sculpt.
He's been at it for the past twenty-five years. When he's not making art, he's teaching schoolchildren in southern Chennai, India.
Muni says his technique involves mixing cotton and glue to give texture to his drawn figures. Then, he says he paints the piece with enamel. Later, he will add jewels and other findings.
He says he wants to adopt more techniques and hold classes for other aspring artists.
