The newest development in alternative art: the use of salvaged and repurposed materials by contemporary artists.

Tristan Manco reveals how artists of all kinds are bringing creativity to basic, often unglamorous materials―from broken bottles, old flip-flops, and skateboards to sustainable resources such as wood, straw, and paper. Through hundreds of illustrations, in-depth artist profiles, and detailed discussions of various materials, he showcases the work of more than thirty innovative and inspiring artists from around the world, from the United States, Mexico, Brazil, and Chile to the UK, Spain, France, and Italy.

Some of the artists have invented new techniques―American artist Rosemarie Fiore uses fireworks to create paintings―while others have pushed the envelope in the presentation of their work by creating fresh, dynamic forms of display. Whether it is Chilean artist Carlos Zuniga’s creative use of text pages from found books and directories or Brazilian sculptor Henrique Oliveira’s ambitious organic forms in salvaged plywood, the book highlights how imaginative approaches to media and technique encourage us to look at the world in new ways.

Book Description Thames & Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Tristan Manco, perhaps the world's most influential commentator on street art, showcases the work of 38 truly innovative and inspirational artists who use low-cost, low-tech media and often totally original techniques to produce work that defies categorization and pushes the boundaries of art itself. Many of them repurpose utilitarian or scrap materials, from unglamorous items of domestic waste, found wood and even organic detritus such as skin and nails to recycled toys, books, skateboards, firecrackers and lights. Others show creative approaches to traditional or proven media such as paper, stone, concrete and steel. The ingeniously crafted and thought-provoking results range across a broad spectrum, from intimate paper collages to large public sculptures constructed from discarded wood. Anyone fascinated by the extraordinary creativity currently emerging at the raw edge of contemporary art will find this book compelling reading. Seller Inventory # AA29780500289914
