Tamil Nadu: A Hindu Making Art From Sunlight

Vignesh, a 31-year-old artist from the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, uses a lens and sunlight to burn his drawings into wood.

As a child, Vignesh used this technique to burn scraps of paper. Now he uses wood to create unique works of art.

He also teaches this technique to young people and hopes that more artists will embrace this art form.
