  • I love the art! Because I like the colors and the way he can transform garbages into art. He was able to make mountains and objects with it.
    How did he make the art? Thank you

  • It's about connection from social to a business world. Where our conceptual ideas are seen in a different way. Where weaknesses become strengths.

    — Manuela

  • I see a material connection to things we usually discard. How wasteful! How destructive , which is the opposite of creative,!

    We are going to need to conserve more and more as our Earth's resources become depleted. What better place to start than with art?!

    Thank you

  • Splendid work that evokes a strong visceral response in the viewer and at the same time provokes an intellectual process, appreciating the origins of both the materials and the concepts. Still, it is mysterious to me why I respond so strongly to this work.
