TONGPANG JAMIR/ UPCYCLED TOYS
Posted by: NeBuzz Uploaded: 29-Apr-15






For Tongpang Jamir, a lighter, an old computer, cell battery or even a pen is much more than a disposable device. Each part is something he can take apart to use and fuse with other parts to create some awesome toys.

His passion for taking things apart and creating something new started in 2007 when the spark wheel of a lighter caught his attention and led him to dismantle the lighter and create his first toy – a miniature bike. And since then he has made over 30 toys.

He uses superglue to fuse the different pieces together and it takes him 12-15 hours to make one toy. He draws inspiration from different things – cars, animation, stop motion movies and Transformers. His method is not fixed. But rather relies on his creative genius to gather and identity materials over time to create his final output. On some days he knows exactly what to make when he has all the raw materials in place and these materials are nothing but discarded parts of motherboards, pens, screwdrivers, mouse, etc. 


Although trained as an architect based in Delhi, Tongpang can also be called an ‘up-cycling artist” because the underline philosophy behind his art work is to reuse junk that people throw away and repurpose it into beautiful works of art.
