If you’ve read some of our other articles, you already know that we really appreciate when an artist re-purposes the old and discarded. The latest example is the most recent work by French sculptor Edouard Martinet. Using the discarded parts from old bicycles, cars, mopeds and anything else to be found in a flea market, Martinet creates incredible anatomically correct sculptures of living creatures.

Martinet’s eye for recognizing beauty in the mundane is marked by his careful selection of materials. Each one of his sculptures is rich with vibrant personality and attention to detail. Edouard Martinet’s work will be exhibited at Sladmore Contemporary from November 27th until January 31st, 2014.
