Create your own Benode Behari Mukherjee inspired artwork!

Can you attempt to make your own masterpiece, based on Benode Behari Mukherjee's paper collages?

By 1957 the artist Benode Behari Mukherjee had lost his eyesight completely – but not his vision. He turned to a more tactile medium – paper collages! He created shapes and compositions purely from memory and continued to experiment with sculpting clay, as well as paper.

Rather than despair because of the darkness that engulfed him, he turned towards these colourful paper forms, never giving up. Inspired by his creations, we bring you a challenge : can you recreate these digitally or create your own masterpiece?
