Sachin Sanghe is a self-taught Micro Sculpture Artist  hail from a village Mudugere, Gauribidanur Taluk, Karnataka. After completing his Engineering he is working in software company in Bangalore city. 


It’s been 15 years since he started using pieces of chalk to create artworks in a unique way. But, it’s only in the last 4-5 years he have taken this art seriously and created intricate designs. he wanted to coin a catchy, yet apt name for my art of sculpting pieces of chalk. Then it was this, CHALKruthi - An Aakruthi (a Kannada word for Structure) made of CHALK. he also do carvings on pencil graphite lead.

He used dissection needle and other tiny sharp tools to carve intricate designs. he do carvings with bare eyes without the aid of magnifiers/lenses. It takes minimum of 6-8 hours to carve any simple CHALKruthi and may take more time depending on the complexity of the structure being carved.
