Meet Michael Albert, modern pop artist. In an effort to combine his art style with his recycling philosophy, he has created a signature line of artwork in which his materials are derived from consumer packaging, old photographs, and discarded cardboard. The results are brilliant collages in the spirit of Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell’s Soup.Through his own interpretation of historical and epic events, such as the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Gettysburg Address, Michael Albert shares his vision of American popular culture. Here is an artist’s America! An Artist's America is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
