He is a digital designer based in UK. He has an impressive portfolio of Sikh related digital designs in 3D format. His digital designs are worth particular attention as he produces impressive figurines of various warriors and symbolism of Sikhism in form of Domes, daggers, etc.
3D printing was a kickstarter successful campaign that has seen the pledged goal of £11500 being surpassed in but a few days.
3D printing is opening up inconceivable possibilities to design and build all kinds of imaginative objects directly from a desktop 3D printer.
The 3d prints of the small statues are described by Taran Singh as follows, “The sculpture will be 12 inches tall and will be cold cast in resin bronze. There will also be a real bronze version which will be limited to 10 casts only. I have researched and carefully crafted each and every component in 3D.”
He further said, “Sikh history and art are my passion and I have always been inspired by stories about the brave Sikh warriors who rose to forge their own Sikh empire in Punjab during the 1700’s. I wanted to create something that would remind people of their bravery and celebrate their inspirational sacrifice. This is my way of sharing their story with the next generation.”
He also held an Anglo Sikh Wars exhibition project in 2017, where he offered three days of creative craft activities and workshops. The final workshop was a great opportunity to share some of the 3D technology that he had been utilizing as part of their in-house artifact digitization project. Their aim was to get children interested in emerging 3D technologies like rapid prototyping and 3D printing.
During the workshop the children saw the 3D printer in action. They learnt about the different types of 3D printers and different materials that can be used.
He held various 3D interactive workshops where people could explore the history and surrounding of Sikhism.
We wish him all the best and may he inspire many others and promote Sikhism religion.
