Edouard Martinet's Insect SculpturesJuxtapoz // Thursday, 21 Nov 2013
Part of a car, bicycle, umbrella, compass, typewriter, clock, compass, the list of materials that French artist Edouard Martinet uses to construct his insect sculptures is as random at varied as it gets. The artist does not solder or weld parts but assembles them with the precision of a watchmaker, screwing them together and taking around a month per sculpture. His first took him four weeks and 17 years for his most recent!
Some of his work will be on show at Sladmore Contemporary in London, opening November 27th.
