BHU student makes it to Guinness World Records for creating world’s largest painting using natural colours – education
Neha Singh, a student at Banaras Hindu University (BHU), set the Guinness World Record for creating the world’s largest painting with natural colors, Ballia District Magistrate Shrihari Pratap Shahi said on Sunday.
Ballia District Magistrate Shrihari Pratap Shahi said in an official statement: “Neha Singh has made the largest painting in the world using natural colors. The painting has a size of 62.72 square meters. Neha’s name has been included in Guinness World Records as she has painted a ‘moksh ka vriksh’ (tree of salvation). “
Neha, a resident of the Kotwari village of the Rasra sub-district in Ballia, is a student of Vedic Sciences at the Hindu University of Banaras. He had previously studied fine arts at BHU.
The Guinness World Records on its website says that the record was achieved by Neha Singh on November 18, 2020.
“The largest spice painting measures 62.72 m2 (675.12 ft2) and was done by Neha Singh (India) in Ballia, India on November 18, 2020. Neha is a graduate in Fine Arts. She was inspired to create this painting to create something special out of what would have been wasted food (the spices used for the painting had passed their expiration date), ”he said.
Ballia DM Shahi visited Neha’s residence in Kotwari village of Rasra sub-district and congratulated her. He also gave him the background certificate. Rasda SDM Moti Lal Yadav also extended his wishes to Neha Singh.
The previous record for the largest spice painting was held by Shreya Tatinini, a resident of Vijaywada, Andhra Pradesh, who did the 588.56-square-foot painting.
