Valay Gada is an artist and sculptor who addresses the challenges of urbanization and climate change through the medium of recycled metal and glass art. In “Square Petal,” he explores human intervention and environmental issues. Gada personifies himself as a parrot tulip, a hybrid entity navigating contemporary existence while respecting ancient wisdom. The flower unfurling from a tight bud signifies the illusionary nature of transformation. At the heart of this sculpture is the idea of the Dervish, a centre that holds controlled chaos within divine abundance. Gada’s unique style transforms everyday materials into hyper-realistic botanical sculptures, challenging viewers to reflect on humanity’s impact on nature. His work bridges art, faith, and societal inquiries, offering moments of engagement and reflection.
