629.98㎡ ‘Tree of Life’ painted in 5 days, ‘The biggest personal painting’
(Jakarta = Yonhap News) Correspondent Hyemi Seong = An Indian artist who painted a picture bigger than a basketball court alone set a Guinness record for the ‘World’s Largest Picture’ in the individual category.
According to Indian Express on the 15th, the super-large painting ‘Tree of Life’ completed on November 30 last year by painter Ravi Sonny (42) living in Udaipur, western Rajasthan was recently registered in the Guinness Book of Records.
The painting drawn by Sony measures 629.98 square meters, which is equivalent to one and a half basketball courts (area 420 square meters).
The existing Guinness record for the individual category of ‘largest painting’ was a painting with a size of 568.47 square meters established by an Italian painter.
In five days, Sony completed a painting inspired by the baobab tree, which has lived for thousands of years and is called the ‘Tree of Life’.
The actual drawing time was recorded as 24 hours and 33 minutes.
He said, “After the outbreak of Corona 19, I quit my stable company and decided to paint the picture I had always dreamed of. The baobab tree symbolizes survival in adversity. It shows my current state. I was fascinated by the unique shape and size of this tree, chosen,” he said.
Sony submitted an application for the Guinness Records in December 2020, and prepared the work for 11 months.
I studied baobab trees and exercised to strengthen my muscles so that I could draw by myself for a long time.
He first completed the drawing on A4 paper and then drew the picture magnified by 10,000 times on the actual canvas.
Sony said, “Honestly, since I was a child, I had been drawing a lot of pictures, so I was confident regardless of the size of the canvas.
He continued, “The desire to give up and negative thoughts continued to overwhelm me, but I was able to complete it until the end by listening to meditation and soothing music,” he said.
