Edathanattukara: Give him a leaf and a vivid portrait is ready in a few minutes. Sree Prasanth, a Plus-Two student, creates magic using a special blade to carve out the facial images of his favourite personalities on green leaves.
His list of leaf portraits includes that of south Indian film actors Allu Arjun, Tovino Thomas, Mohanlal, Harisree Ashokan, among others.
Sree Prasanth, a student of Government Higher Secondary School at Arannaloor near here in Palakkad district, started to use leaves, especially that of jackfruit trees, as canvas to etch portraits six months ago.
He has also proved his mettle in pencil carbon craft by creating 26 letters in the English alphabet with it.
Sree Prasanth keeps the pencil carbons in glass bottles to keep them intact.
The artist is a resident of Mandapakunnu.
