Sreenivas M.R. had a hobby of collecting used pen refills from friends. As part of ‘Say No to Plastic’ program, which he organizes for awareness on global warming in schools and colleges, he setup used pen refill collection boxes to add to his collection. After a while, he realized that he could turn these raw materials into incredible miniature structures, like Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Tower of Pisa . His work has set a national record and was featured in the ‘India Book of Records’ in 2012 for making miniature of Taj Mahal from 700 used pen refills, but he isn’t stopping there. Sreenivas’ goal is to have covered the famous landmarks from all over the world. Right now, however, he is focusing on making miniature of houses and interior design works. He also helps in making miniature models for exhibitions and fairs.
